This is a very comprehensive workshop which includes bias binding, straight binding,double binding, mitred corners, and an introduction to Paula’s binding necklace.
As an accomplished and award winning quilt maker, Paula passes on her expertize on how to create perfect binding for your quilt – in other words don’t let the binding let you down!
In this very comprehensive workshop Paula covers how to create a continuous piece of bias binding from a square of fabric; bias is not always necessary, but when you have a scalloped edge to your quilt or indeed a circular project to bind, then it is essential. You are shown how to draw the cut lines and then how to become the absent-minded professor for sewing.
Paula continues with creating straight binding for a project with a couple of excellent tips on how to join two strips with a bias seam; and then what to do to create a perfect mitred corner when you are using a seam allowance that is bigger than 1/4inch.
and finally, Paula shows you how to join the final strips together – again with a bias seam – and your double binding lies absolutely flat.
As a subscribed member you can have access to workshop notes for this delightful little purse, which uses a continuous piece of binding.
and if you like the idea of the bias binding tool, then we have a simlar one in the shop – click here to view.
and look at that lovely double-coloured binding – how effective is that!
