Binding the Quilt

It's easy to cut and assemble the long binding strips that cover the edges of a quilt. Here's a tutorial that gives you some options and walks you through binding strip assembly.

How to Sew Mitered Binding to a Quilt
Doublefold mitered binding gives the edges of your quilt a professional, finished appearance, and is an easy task to accomplish.

Finish the Quilt with Self Binding
Self binding is one technique you can use to finish a quilt. It's not the best choice for durability, but can be a good choice for wallhangings, miniatures and other quilts that probably won't get as much wear. Quiltmag.com offers advice in this tutorial.
