  • Re: machine & single fold binding

    I'm sorry I did not make myself clear about applying the binding completely by machine which means There would top stitching on the fold of the binding on top of the quilt

  • Re: machine & single fold binding

    I plan to apply the binding totally by machine. No hand work at all. To do this I first stitch the binding to the back of the quilt after having trimmed the batting and backing to the same size as the top. A 1/4 in seam is usually what I take. I then fold the binding to the top, enough to cover the stitching line from applying the batting to the back

    Perhaps you could do what my grandmother did when a quilt was that far gone. She made another quilt over it. If the backing was good she made a new top , tied them together and added a binding. I'm not sure if she cut off the binding or removed it. I have 2 of her quilts she treated this way one has a 9 patch top over the old top, the other has

    Yes it does. thank you so much!so I would be sewing through the fold for the 1/4 " (2 layers,) the top, the batting, the backing for a total of 5 layers. If I use double fold the number of layers would be the same . the folded fabric (again 2 layers) the top, batting, backing. 5 layers so using single fold binding would not reduce the number of

  • machine & single fold binding

    I know how to bind using the sewing machine but I'm drawing a bank on single fold binding. Mother used to do it but I just can't remember how. I am considering binding my blue jeans stained glass quilt in denim and single fold would be much easier than double fold to run through the machine. or at least I think. If some one could tell me how

  • Re: Know how old your needle is

    Here are a few things that a dull needle does on my machine. Starts skipping stitches Makes a dull popping noise that indicates the needle is breaking threads instead of going between them Thread starts breaking frequently pulls threads along the seam line and ultimately the needle will bend and/or break when crossing a seam I try not to let it get
