Today I prepared piped binding for my next quilt to be bound.
HERE'S HOW I DO IT
As a an heirloom dress and wedding gown maker over the years, I have made A LOT of piping and can do it in my sleep, lol. Many years ago, when the only other foot I had on my machine was a zipper foot, I perfected my way of doing piping and binding that works for me.
|Here is what the stitching looks like behind the foot as the piping is attached to the binding.|
|Here you can see the stitching in front and back of the foot.|
Unpressed piped binding
Pressed piped binding
|This is what it should look like after pressing. FRONT|
It looks flat but will round out once you pick it up.
Finished piped binding ready to attach to the quilt
|See how naturally the piping lays on top. The edges naturally stay together. There's no need to pin it to stay.|
AND MY PIPED BINDING IS READY TO APPLY TO MY QUILT....
