Louise

This is how I do mine!! Only not quite so precisely - I fiddle around with it a bit more. I think it sits perfectly! Thanks for going to the trouble to do this as you were madly finishing your lovely quilt. Daphne and I are feeling sick today so tomorrow is not looking good. Will email you later! xx

Great tutorial Kellie!

Amelia

Thanks Kellie. Fantastic photos - when you are like me and look at pictures good photos make all the difference. Thanks for taking the time to put up this tutorial (i need to keep an eye out for that yummy stripe).

Lara (thornberry)

What an impressive tutorial Kellie! I'm only just starting with quilting and this will be a fantastic reference. Thank you!

Jodie

What a great tutorial Kellie!!! I've always wanted to know how to join my bias binding together properly, thanks.

Louise

Thank you so much, that is a great tutorial! I don't suppose you would also have time to give some tips for applique? :) :) :) I am in awe of your quilts, but I have no idea how to applique!

Hayley

Thanks Kellie, I have needed to learn how to join my binding together at the end, great tips. Thanks for the tiny snippets of the latest quilt!!

Rachel

Oh Kellie, thanks so much for this tutorial. Especially for the bit about getting the matchup at the end of the binding. It's been my problem area.

Your pictures were great and made it very clear.

Thanks,
Char

meaghan

Thats awesome, I love the title.

MichelleB

Great tutorial! Thanks! In looking over your blog, I have a question. I see that you have a Bernina 440 with a stitch regulator. I also see that you have nice wonderful tiny even stitches. I have the same machine, with the BSR, and I was wondering which "mode" you used the BSR in. The one where you move the fabric, and it stitches automatically, or the one where you use the foot pedal? Thanks so much!

this must have taken you ages to do - well done. Have a lovely weekend

A great tutorial, Kellie. It's the first time I did a binding like this and with your directions it worked out perfectly!

Sharon Graham

Janette Anderson

Hi I was wondering why I cannot purchase the quilt pattern Garden Party(indicates it does not ship to Canada) but can purchase Pretty in Pink. I would really love to have both they are so gorgeous. Thank you. Janette

Sonja

Your binding tuto is the greatest I've read on the net and the only one I usewhen I'm binding my quilts. Thank YOU!!!!

Mary-Anne

Great advice on how to match up the stripes. I would have just fiddled and resewn it until I was ready to throw it against the wall in disgust. You've saved me from a temper tantrum. My husband thanks you!
