Binding Inside Corners Tutorial
The Triangle Quilt Along with Paula of The Sassy Quilter has been a blast!
It’s been great to follow along with everyone’s progress each week.
And it’s fun to see how differently each quilt looks as they are developing.
I have my rows all pieced and my top is finished!
My friend, Judy of Quilt Paradigm, is also taking part in the quilt along. In a previous post where I outlined my intention to leave the sides of the quilt pointed, she left a comment encouraging me to go with my plan. And I am glad that I did. Trying something new is always fun! Back then Judy shared her Angled Edges Binding tutorial, showing how to bind those inside corners.
Step 1 – Carefully clip those inside corners. Just a little knick – less than 1/4″ long.
Step 2 – Apply the binding, stopping where the corner will be turning out again, just above the clip.
Step 3 – With needle down and pressure foot raised, straighten out that inside corner. Lower the presser foot and continue to apply the binding. When the binding has been attached to the entire back of the quilt, press the binding toward the front of the quilt.
Step 4 – Now apply the binding to the front of the quilt as usual. The arrow shows where you will stop stitching with the needle in the down position.
Step 5 – With the needle down, raise the presser foot and adjust the edge to continue back out of the corner.
Step 6 – As you approach the outside corner, fold as you normally do for binding corners.
Step 7 – Again showing the approach to the inside corner.
Step 8 – Stopping at the point.
Step 9 – Needle down, pressure foot raised, and straightening out the edge.
Step 10 – May as well share an outside corner too. This is how I fold the corner under.
And hold it in place as I stitch up to it.
And here are the results…. On top.
And from the back.
It’s obvious by sharing this tutorial that I have jumped ahead and finished my quilt.
But I will wait to share pictures of the full quilt until the last link up – the Triangle Extravaganza on April 25th! Excited to show just how the quilting went!
