Can you say binding

binding and more binding! Yesterday I was totally productive by putting on 8 bindings on runners, it felt 'sew' good to have that many done. Today not as good with only 4 but I did have errands to run also. And the ones I did had lots of strange angles so it took longer.  Ok I sew all my bindings on with the sewing machine, here are few quick pic's to show you how I do it. My binding is 2.25" wide. After sewing it to the front of my runner, I press it out away from the runner.

Then flip it to the back, next I stitch in the ditch on the front of the runner using a ditch foot while catching the back of the binding.

I pin the binding in place at the corner, then pull out the pin as I am sewing up to it.

And here is the binding all on...

The front and...                                                                      once again, along with 2 others I did                                                                                                           yesterday.

  1. Oh my! That is a lot of binding. Your FMQ is so even and beautiful.

  2. Your table runners look fab and your binding is awesome! I am going to have to try the sewing on the front and then stitching in the ditch trick. . . I have always sewn to the back and top stitched on the front. . . How many times did you do this method before you didn't miss any spots on the back.... I'm thinking I might have to do a LOT LOL

  3. You're an inspiration to lazy people like me! :) way to go girl!
