    I found a new way to bind!!! Raggedy binding

    This person at this website is brilliant!!! I hate to do binding, but she thought up a new method to bind your quilts. It is awesome!! http://quiltingquick.weebly.com/1/po...existence.html

    Check it out!! Read all the instructions or you won't understand what she's doing. I am going to try this. Any one can do it! She is my new hero!!!!!

    I like the look, for some projects, but, to me it doesn't seem any easier.

    I do a raggedy binding on my rag quilts, but I don't care for that look on other quilts. I really don't mind doing the binding the traditional way, machine sewing the front and hand sewing the back.

    Yes, it wouldn't work with every quilt, but it will work on quite a few quilts. Some quilts are just too beautiful to do the binding this way.

    LOL!


    But I have to admire the blogger's ingenuity at coming up with that technique.

    Just a thought -
    If I were giving that to a baby, I'd be washing it many more times to make sure it's ALL ragged and ALL the extra lint/threads has been washed out and removed.
    I've made chenille quilts and have washed them as many as 5 times before gifting them.

    In case you've never seen it, here is Sharon Schamber's video on binding.

    While I actually like the hand stitching part of binding, using her method(s) would also get you great results when machine sewing the 2nd side down (whether it's the back or front).

    Good luck with whatever method you choose.

    I think this would be really cute on a baby quilt. Still looks like a lot of work.

    I think that making all those little clips would be time consuming, it is cute, but I'll stick to my regular way of finish sewing binding on back by hand.
