How to Make a Binding-less Quilt
Sounds weird, doesn’t it? A couple of volunteers have asked me about this before, so I figured I would post a tutorial about it.
Piece your quilt using any pattern:
Log Cabin Nine-Patch
Add the batting (depending on the size, and in accordance with how your local chapter wants each quilt) by sewing it to the bottom of the quilt top using a straight stitch around the sides, so as to keep it in place.
Now add the bottom; this will be done in such a way that you don’t see three sides of the seams, and trim the excess of the fourth, unless you are familiar with the “professional” method of doing this, by leaving just enough room for your hand to fit to pull the quilt right side out.
So begin with prints facing from quilt top and quilt bottom. Sew a straight stitch on ONLY three sides, inserting your hand into the quilt and pulling it right-side out when you get to the fourth. After the quilt is right side out, and the corners are crisp, sew a straight stitch across the fourth side. Quilt in zigzag stitch one inch in from the edges and you’re done!!
Be sure to contact your local area coordinator on BinkyPatrol.org from the drop-down menu at the top, to schedule a donation drop-off!
Thanks for reading!!
