Unexpected benefit of blogging: it’s easy to compile links to all your favorite resources in one place so you can find them again! These are my go-to resources for quilt binding techniques.

Hand Finished Binding

If you are planning on submitting a quilt to a show, it’s good to know what the judges look for in your binding. A hand-finished binding is definitely the preferred method. I tend to use Elizabeth Hartman’s book when I want to use this method. She has great instructions and photos.

Machine Binding

Some quilts are not going to be hanging on a wall as a work of art, they are going to be used on a bed or as a throw. A machine binding works great because it’s faster and easier to create.

Special Binding Techniques

Some quilts call for special techniques, such as binding around hexagons. Other times you need a simple technique for small projects.
