At FNSI the binding was attached to my August UFO and today I will be hand stitching it to the back of the quilt.
This is how I stitch a binding, with the edge of binding toward me, and stitching from right to left. I like to use lots of Clover clips to keep the binding snuggly in place as I stitch.
Just for fun, I took a poll of my quilting friends to see the variety in binding techniques.
These are the hands of the infamous Barb - she stitches her binding with the quilt towards her, the binding edge away from her, and stitching right to left. No pins.
These are the hands of Louise, and she stitches with the quilt on her right, the edge of the binding to her left, taking stitches away from herself. Lots of pins.
These are the hands of Deanna binding a quilt.
Oh look, she stitches in the
But no pins or clips.
How do you hand stitch your bindings? Do you use any of these techniques? Have you invented your own method?
