Do you quilt before binding?
Binding a quilt is the final step in finishing. Before you bind, you need to somehow “quilt” your quilt. This means to attach the front and back, with batting in between.
Do you have to use bias binding on a quilt?
For a square quilt straight grain binding, meaning fabric strips cut cross grain or length-wise grain, will work well. If, however, you’re binding a quilt with curved edges, you’ll want to cut bias strips for your binding. The stretch in the bias makes it easier to maneuver the binding around the quilt’s curved edges.
Can you buy quilt binding?
Quilters in the US can order directly from Kelli, and international customers can purchase her premade quilt binding from Southern Fabric. Kelli sent the premade quilt binding as a gift, with no obligation to blog.
