Binding Class

Binding Workshop

Binding Workshop

I am also a quilt show judge.  One of my observations while judging is that many quilters can improve their projects by improving their binding skills.   Like many of you, I was never offered a class focused on Quilt Bindings, and how they affect judging.

Students will learn and experience:

  • What judges look at when they inspect a quilt's binding.
  • Why proper pressing of quilts and batting enhances how flat a quilt lays.
  • How to easily join fabric strips to create the long binding strip.
  • How to easily affix the binding strip using school glue and sewing.
  • How to create perfectly mitered corners without bulk.
  • How to easily 'close' the binding without using math, measuring, or special tools.

This technique requires frequent pressing; I recommend a minimum of 1 iron for every 2 students.  You should be sure that your classroom's electrical system has enough outlets and can accomodate the current draw.

The class is about 2.5 hours in length and is suitable for all skill levels.
