There is a technique that I plan on trying– I want to learn how to completely bind a quilt by machine. I will use this technqiue on gift quilts and some samples for my classes. When I make quilts that I submit for shows, I will use a standard binding technique and hand sew it to the back.
The technique that I am looking to learn is known as “Susie’s Magic Binding” and there are lots of variation tutorials on YouTube.
But the best tutorial that I have found is by Linda Pearl, a fellow 31 Day Blog Challenge Quilter. The technique is a cool way to completely bind a quilt by machine that has a neater look than other techniques that I have tried. I have several gift quilts to bind so they will be perfect opportunities to learn this technique. Of course, I’ll do a test on a small practice piece first. Here’s a link to Linda Pearl’s Post and video.
