I finished the $2 top this morning. Since I’ve shown so many pictures of the front, I decide to post one of the back that shows the machine binding.
I struggled with machine binding for years, but I kept at it and figured it out. I always pin from the back making sure the pin tips stick out the front. I pin every inch or two with the quilt resting on a flat surface, like a table. Pinning is the key.
I still enjoy turning binding by hand, but I limit that to quilts I keep for myself. I machine bind all charity quilts.
If you haven’t given machine binding a try, it’s well worth learning.
Happy holidays to you and yours. I’m looking forward to a couple of days to relax and spend time with my family. Hope you enjoy the same.
