My grandmother left me a number of quilt projects to complete - mostly squares but one is a quilt top. I am planning to machine quilt this one for my first machine adventure. My question is this - the quilt top already has about a4-5 inch
strip sewn around I presume is for the binding. However, I was told that you let the needle run a bit over the edge and then cover the machine needle stop with the binding. Should I take the binding off? I usually put the binding on at the
end. Please forgive my stupidity. I'm a real newbie at this!
