There is more than one way to execute beautful, unique bindings. In the class we will explore different ways to bind quilted pieces – a traditional straight of grain machine sewn on binding, a straight of grain machine sewn on binding with a faux-flange, a double bias binding with hand sewn finishing or machine sewn finish, and a colorful Prairie Point binding. All these bindings can add color and personality to your pieces. By finishing your pre-stitched placemats, you will learn how to cut and prepare the binding, and sew it on making French fold corners; how to machine stitch or properly hand stitch the second side of the binding on, and how to join the 2 ends of the binding without adding bulk. Included will be information on bias bindings, straight of grain bindings, and multi-colored bindings and the advantages of each type of binding.
