Best Ways to Bind a quilt


Self binding

This is a comparatively less time-consuming method than fabric strip binding. Self binding will show off your exceptionally beautiful backing fabric, but the binding is only a single fabric layer thick. For self binding your quilt, cut your backing fabric to be a few inches bigger than the batting and top on all sides. Make sure it is big enough to show however much of the backing fabric you’d like on the quilt’s front.

Continuous strip binding

If you’re going to regularly handle and wash the quilt, this method is your best bet because it adds 2 protective fabric layers that cover the quilt’s edges, instead of just one. The easiest to make is straight-of-grain binding. If your quilt’s edges are curved, it’s better to make bias binding instead.

Prairie points

You could finish the quilt’s edges with triangular, folded-fabric embellishments, or prairie points. Prairie points require you to put in more time and effort as compared to ordinary strip binding but give your special quilt a pretty, saw-toothed finish.
