Sewing on Binding

Eleanor Burns gives a great tutorial for sewing binding onto a quilt. Notice how she leaves her backing and backing larger than the top!

Eleanor Burns (the Queen of Quilting) shows how to sew on the binding strips and sew the corners for a perfect fit. Eleanor is a fantastic teacher and her series of shows on PBS continues to draw viewers and her books are very popular.

She is one of the most fun people and if you ever have a chance to attend a class, retreat or workshop with her you’ll treasure it forever!

    I searched the web for help with applying satin ribbon for a baby blanket. This was the closest I could find and it did help! If you have a HOW TO VIDEO on making a blanket, I would be interested. Thanks, AVA
