Looks wonderful. Wonder clips work well for the binding. A trick I like to use is to secure the binding with a very thin strip of Elmers washable school glue. I press it with the iron. No clips to remove or pins to stick.


Your quilts are beautiful! I am one of those strange ones - I love to put bindings on quilts! I find it very calming to hand sew the binding to the back. Have lots of fun with your sewing this week.


Your quilts are lovely additions to your porch! The flag quilt is especially fun for this time of year! I'm a big fan of both Clover Clips & hand sewing binding to the back. But when you have a back-log of quilts that only need binding I get machine sewing it down! Have a great week in your studio!

Hooray for two finished quilts! I sew almost all of my binding by machine these days and love to use Wonder Clips instead of pins. I love those things!

Wonder clips!!!


Gorgeous quilts. I too use the wonder clips when I sew bindings on quilts.


May I ask how wide you cut your binding strip? I have been curious about machine stitching binding, but have not tried it-yet.

Beautiful quilts. By any chance do you know the name of the patterns?

The quilts are lovely! I used to use pins when binding by machine. Then I alternated pins and Clover clips. Then I switched to just the clips and it works great - and no more pin pricks!!


I do all my bindings on the machine. Especially any for kids. Much more durable. Try sewing the binding to the back side of the quilt, and then turn it over and top stitch in the front. I don’t it easier and you don’t have to worry about catching it all down below.


PamO’s comment about using Elmer’s glue and iron is a game changer for finishing bindings by machine. Try it, you’ll like it!


Your quilts are beautiful! And, your porch looks very cozy, very inviting. You don't find random strangers sitting out there during the day, do you?!
