    Red face kates big binding video on u-tube

    Has anyone made the quilt shown using the binding method shown in the video?
    I was questioning the fact that batting was used and there was no mention of quilting being done.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    It sure looks interesting, for charity quilts or quick baby quilts. Since the front and back are just about a yard each, it looks like the binding takes 2 yards. Guess that would depend on exactly how wide you make the big binding. And you would need to quilt after binding, but if the center is only 40" that isn't too bad.

    I just watched the video and it looks to me as though you'd have to do any quilting after the binding is attached. And, by stitching it on from the front, you might run into the same issues as regular binding in having the stitches fall off and out of the ditch from the back. I keep looking for a technique that eliminates hand-stitching the binding and have tried a few methods but am always forced to go back to hand-stitching it. This big-border method uses an awfully lot of fabric and would not be worth it to me unless the back looks as nice as the front.

    Sure makes it look simple, but I think a whole piece might lay better than a pieced top.

    I really like this quilt. I paid to download the detailed version.i always use the big double binding. You can rig it so you use a single layer. I made 10 of them for baby gifts. I have also used a modified version to make flannel receiving blankets

    Question for snipforfun -- do you tack or quilt the body of this quit? Have you washed one to see how the layers stay together and the batting doesn't bunch up inside.
    Yes, I understand about using a single layer for the binding. That would save on fabric for sure.
    Thanks for your input.

    Have you tried Ricky Tim's binding technique? It is done entirely by machine. He details the steps in his book/video "Grand Finale." It entails a piping strip (that was what drew me to this method in the 1st place), mitered corners, and a visible line of stitching on the back around the perimeter. It's really elegant and a huge time saver.
    I didn't make this beautiful GFG quilt but it's on my wish list to do
