  • Machine quilting after binding or before binding?

    Hello quilters, I'm new to quilting and actually working on my first quilt, although I have been sewing for many years.

  • Adjustable Bias Tape Binding Machine Foot ?

    Being new at Quilting, when I began 5 yrs ago, my first machine I bought was a Brother SQ9050. I have to say I have enjoyed it and it's still the machine I use until I can afford something even better. I'm always looking for accessories for it. Yesterday, I found the "Adjustable Bias Tape...

  • Re: Binding

    I usually use straight binding. It's quick , easy to work with, and comes out very nice. I don't think there's a visible difference between straight and bias binding once the quilt is done. I've done bias binding but it takes so much more fabric I don't like using it unless I have...

    I have been working on a Wonky Log Cabin lap quilt, done in black, off white, and shades of grays. The blocks will finish at 12", which will make this top 36" square. I need to get the lap quilt to at least 40" square, but I do not want to add any blocks. Nor do I think I want to add sashing...

  • Binding odd Shapes

    I'm very new to quilting, and have only made square or rectangular quilts so far. Binding them has been easy! I'd like to try some other shapes like octagons or circles, etc. In my mind I just cant figure out how to do the binding on them, lol I'd love any help or suggestions! Thanks, Linda

  • Re: binding/walking foot

    I'm not sure what the correct name is, but I use a magnet thing with a straight edge. I place it where I want it and it keeps the fabric and sewing line straight while binding.

  • Binding: Bias or not

    OK, experts, give me your stuff. I'm finishing my first quilt: a KING size, started in 2003 and here I am about ready to bind it. It was constructed using quilt-as-you-go, and boy, what a lot of trouble I've seen and things I've learned along the way!!! It will be used as a bed quilt, washed...
