    binding the quilt

    I'm a new quilter and am at the last step in putting it all together. How do I finish the border that keeps all fabric together? All help appreciated

    "Search" hereon the board for "binding", or there are many videos, etc available by doing the search on Google. Good luck!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    You could finish it a couple of different ways. There's the "birthing method" where you sew the quilt and backing right sides together, leaving a gap on one side, then turn it right side out and hand-stitch the gap closed. Or there's the traditional binding method, which you can do either entirely by machine, or half-machine/half-hand sew.

    You might want to search on YouTube and watch a couple of videos to help you decide which method is best for you. Good luck!
