Machine Binding

Elaine is going to expand your view of how to attach bindings to your quilts with your sewing machine in this sample filled demo. We'll start by discussing when it's appropriate to sew the binding on by sewing machine.

You'll learn what width of strips to cut for the binding size you want, how to get that perfect mitered corner every time, and most important, how to make that final join look practically invisible. Other variables like sewing machine presser feet, thread colors and types, decorative stitches, needles and a whole lot more will be explored. This lecture is going to give you some simple tips that will have your bindings looking very professional in no time.

Jelly Roll Rug - (Squared Pattern) – (there are two styles, but the squared one will be much easier to teach in a one session class)
This is a perfect gift for anyone, including yourself or your pets. The rugs are very easy to make and can become addictive. There are two different styles, but we’re going to work on the squared pattern in class, but you’ll get tips for both styles. Grab a jelly roll or use up yardage that you cut into strips. You can purchase a roll of 2 ½” batting strips, or bring your own pre-cut batting strips. A great way to use up batting scraps if you quilt a lot of quilts. All levels: What to bring: sewing machine in good working order, general purpose presser foot, thread to match your fabric strips, binding clips (if you have them), rotary cutter, snips for clipping threads, paper and pins (to label your strips if you want to), light fusible interfacing (to join batting strips if you’re using pieces).
