I thought that it would be very useful to have a list of online references about the different ways people add a binding edge to a quilt so I’ve compiled it here where I can share it with you.
Sometimes it is easier to understand a technique when it is explained in a different way. If one idea doesn’t appeal, or is confusing, check out another method until you find the one that will become your staple “go to” method.
Some people have included videos and downloadable printed instructions on their pages.
As I find more references I will add them to this page. Work your way through the various blog posts below or if you prefer a visual guide jump directly to my YouTube Channel: Adding Bindings to quilts to watch the videos.
