Quilts are my labor of love. They are made in layers and each layer offers something uniquely special. From fabric selection to long-arm stitching, they all create character and charm, even the quilt binding.

Today, I want to focus on the final step, the binding. We have chatted about quilt binding so many times here on The Sewing Loft but never about this easy tip for finishing things off.  To keep things simple I will be remaking the Quiltologie Mini Mania Kitty Dance quilt in fabrics from my stash. The kit is made by Fabric Editions and comes complete with all fabrics.

Expand your quilting knowledge while making something fun with the Quiltologie mini quilt. Includes video how to for simple binding technique.

Including:

  • white on white print for ground
  • pinks, powder blues and green prints
  • background fabric & binding

Additional Supplies Needed:

The Kitty Dance mini quilt finishes at  18 1/2″ x 18 1/2″.  This pattern is designed to help you practice and perfect your quilt binding skills. I even have a quick video to show you just how easy it can be!

Since most quilts are made with straight lines, there is no need to use bias binding. However, the angled seams give bias a more luxurious feel and can be created with straight grain cuts. Let me show you how.

Straight quilting is beautiful and the laser beam guide makes it easy to keep your stitches straight.

I wanted to keep things simple with my quilting and just did rows of straight lines. Sometimes it an be tricky to keep those stitches lined up  but thanks to the laser beam guide on my Baby Lock Destiny II, it was a breeze.

Don't forget to add a label to your sewing project before attaching the quilt binding.

It is so important to label your work will double as a hanger.
