Binding Class - Beginning Machine Only

Class to learn how to machine and hand sew binding for your quilt.  This class does not cover bias binding.  

Items covered in this class:

  1. Intro to binding
  2. French fold binding
  3. Ironing the fabric 
  4. Stitching the back fabric on the quilt  (Walking Foot or 1/4" piecing foot required)
  5. Joining the ends 
  6. Machine binding front side 
  7. Tools that are helpful - Corner Clipper

You are required to bring the following to class: 
  • Sewing machine, foot control and power cord 
  • Creative Grids ruler to cut 2-1/2" strips.  
  • 1/4" Quarter inch piecing foot 
  • Walking Foot or 1/4" piecing foot is required 
  • Open toe foot that allows you to see the edge of the binding easily for the top stitching.  Prefer dual feed feet.
  • All of your feet that you have for your sewing machine
    • For Bernina machines I will be using Walking Foot or Foot #71, and the Foot #34/34D
  • Your personal iron
  • Your personal ironing mat
  • Snips 
  • Sewing pins 
  • Piecing thread 
  • 1/4 Yard of fabric for the actual binding (Please note: do not bring finished quilt tops.  Instead fabric and batting will be provided for the "mock" quilt).  You can bring extra jelly roll strips for this part as well.
  • Thread for your sewing machine that matches well with your fabric
  • Rotary Cutter (45 mm preferred) 
  • Wonder clips (optional)
  • Purple thang

During class we will be reviewing the Ultimate Binding Guide Card.  This card is recommended to be purchased as reference for when you are outside of class.
