    Easy Quilt Binding Instructions

    These free instructions are for binding a quilt. The method brings the backing fabric to the front of the quilt to create the binding. It is a very simple method that results in perfect corners and very little hand sewing.

    Step 1: Measuring

    Make the quilt top. Cut the batting the same size as the quilt top. Cut the backing fabric larger than the quilt top and batting. How much larger?

    Circle Blue Jeans Quilt

    Oh, I know, it's not like you are going to get yards and yards of fabric from a shirt that you find in a thrift shop - or even one you find in your closet.

    You may get yards and yards from a big, full skirt or a long dress. But not from a shirt.

    However, I was surprised to see how much usable fabric you can get from one shirt.

    This was a men's medium shirt, 100% cotton and in pretty good shape.

    Below is the process I followed to get as ...

    ironed some freezer paper. Yes iron it first cause freezer paper shrinks, then iron it on the backside of the square. let the kids draw on it with regular crayons. then heat set it. (turn the square over and make sure you put a piece of paper under the drawn side to catch the oils from the crayon.) remove the freezer paper and sew it together. Hope that was understandable

    Start with at least 32 strips (2 1/2" wide) x WOF.

    Sew 4 strips together, side by side. Iron all seams in the same direction. Cut the left side to where you have a clean edge to work off of. From that edge cut the strip set into 8" segments. Thie should yeild 5 segments. You will need two segments to make 1 block. Do this with all strip sets.
