How to make your own "standard" binding for BRQ to apply:
1. To figure how much binding to make, find the perimeter measurement of your quilt by measure all four sides of your quilt and adding them together.
2. Add an extra 20” to the perimeter measurement for seaming and turning corners.
Example: 280”+15”= 295” total of binding needed.
3. Divide total length of binding needed by length of strips you will be cutting and round up to the next whole number.
(Example: if you need 295" total and are cutting 45" strips from the width of the fabric, you will need 295 / 45 = 6.555 strips. Round up and cut 7 strips.
4. Cut strips. (Strips may be cut widthwise or lengthwise with the grain but you MUST cut bias strips if applying binding to a curved edge.)
For 3/8" wide finished binding, cut strips 2 1/2" wide.
For a ¼” wide finished binding, cut strips 2 1/8” side.
5. Sew strips together with shortened stitch length and on a 45 degree angle. (Using an angled seam distributes the seam's bulkiness for a smoother finished binding.)
6. Press seams open.
7. Press binding longways with wrong sides together so the finished product is half the cut width (or 1 1/4" wide with cut edges together and a fold on the other side.)
8. To keep binding neat until it is ready to be used either an fold and pin through all layers, wrap around a piece of cardboard and pin the end in place or make jellyroll and pin the end.
Fullness Disclaimer - Fullness and/or puckers within a quilt and its borders cannot be quilted out. We cannot guarantee that puckers and tucks won’t be sewn in. In some cases excessive fullness in borders may result in the quilt corners not being square. The flatter your quilt top is, the better the finished quilt will be.
Mechanical Disclaimer – Please be aware that sewing machines including longarm machines are mechanical devices. Although we do our utmost to ensure perfect results every time, on very rare occasions mechanical problems can occur which may cause minor damage to a quilt top and/or backing. We will do our very best to remedy the problem.
