I’m relatively new to quilting but not incredibly new, so you’d think I would have known this.
The one part I’ve always not liked about the whole quilting deal is sewing down the binding. It either seemed to take forever or I rushed through it and it looked like crap when it was done.
I don’t remember how I found this blog post over at ankastreasures. In fact I don’t even remember searching for binding tips but somehow through some link somewhere, I stumbled acrossed it.
I’m in love with her method! It seems so much quicker. I even went and bought straw needles to try which I am also in love with. They glide so nicely through the fabric. The worst part is the needle eye is really, really, really (did I sat really?) tiny! But with reading glasses in hand, I will prevail!
Do I now like to sew binding? Not really but it’s a whole lot more tolerable!
