Quilt Binding Tutorial: Finishing Ends

ChristyNeedlecrafts, Sewing, Tutorials72 Comments

So you know I’m pretty new at quilting. So I’ve spent quite a lot of time in recent weeks scouring the internet for tutorials and tips. It turns out there was one tutorial that I had a particularly difficult time finding.

When I was first putting the bindings on my placemats, I saw a tutorial somewhere about how to finish the two ends so that the binding appeared continuous. Of course, when it came time to finish my ends, everything I read said to just tuck one end into the other and sew them together. But that leaves a lump and a straight seam instead of the nice smooth angled seams that I wanted.

I KNEW the instructions were out there somewhere, and I KNEW it wasn’t that hard. I just couldn’t remember how to do it on my own. Well, I finally found the instructions somewhere in the depths of the internet, and of course, by now I’ve already forgotten where it was. So I’m writing up my own tutorial so that I’ll never forget again. It really is embarrassingly simple.

So you’re almost done with your binding. You left an 8-10 inch tail at the beginning, expertly mitered all your corners, and are now back, about 10 inches from where you started.

Your end tail is about the same length as your beginning tail, so they overlap by quite a bit.

All you have to do is clip the two ends so that the distance they overlap is the same as the full width of your binding strip.

My binding strip is 2.5 inches wide, so I lined the edge of my quilt up with a ruler and picked a spot for the seam. As you see above I clipped the first end at the 14 inch mark.

Then I clipped the other end at the 11.5 inch mark. So they overlap by exactly 2.5 inches.

Now is where it gets (slightly) tricky(er), and where you’ll be glad you left a nice wide gap between the two ends. You want to gather the quilt together and yank those two ends out. Unfold them and pin them right-sides together at right angles.

Then sew a straight line between the two inner corners (marked above).

And then clip off that unnecessary corner.


And now, flatten your quilt back out, re-fold the binding, press, and voila!

Perfect seam, perfect length, perfect everything! All that’s left is to sew down that last bit.

Yaaaay!

 

 

I hope you found this tutorial useful. If you like it, please do me a favor and pin it :o)

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    What I didn’t know again then is writers are notoriouwly late on their deadlines ( journal

    I think that everything posted was very logical. But,

    think about this, what if you typed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Quilt Binding Tutorial:

    Finishing Ends | Inklings & Yarns is kinda vanilla.

    You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create

    post titles to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion,

    it could make your website a little bit more interesting.

  13. ミドリムシ

    「ユーグレナ」とは「ミドリムシ」学名で「Euglena」と書かれています。ラテン語で美しい(eu)眼(glena)という意味です。
    5億年以上前に原始の地球で誕生した生き物で、人類の先生です。1660年代オランダの「微生物学の父」と言われたアントニ・ファン・レーウェンフック氏によって紹介されました。
    ミドリムシはべん毛の近くに、光を感じるきれいな赤い点(眼点)を1つ持っています。このユーグレナの赤い点が美しい瞳に見えたことから。「ユーグレナ(美しい眼)」とネーミングされました。

    その後、1950年半ばにアメリカのメルヴィン・カルヴィン氏らが、ユーグレナを用いて光合成の検査を行い、1961年ノーベル化学賞を受賞しています。

    1970年代、ユーグレナはアメリカ航空宇宙局(NASA)で、宇宙開発の分野でも注目されました。
    みどりむしが太陽光と二酸化炭素で育つことができることから注目されました。
    宇宙空間において、乗務員の呼吸によって排出された二酸化炭素がみどりむしの成長を促し、結果、酸素も得られるというメリットが発見されました。
    空気のない宇宙空間においても、みどりむしは活躍しそうですね!宇宙に人類がどんどん進出する未来では、ユーグレナはもっと欠かせない存在になっているかもしれませんね!
