How to Bind the Quilted Coasters

I’m delighted to have something new for you–a video on How To Bind the Quilted Coasters.

The binding on my Big Stitch Coasters seems to be a sticking point for many, and so I’m happy to be able to show you exactly how I do it.

The video includes picking out your fabric, creating your own bias tape, and then I go through all of the steps for attaching it to your coasters. I like to sew the top by machine and then hand stitch it down on the back. I’ll mention some tips too on how I’d attach it all by machine if that’s something you’re curious about.

Of course there are a million ways to do just about anything in sewing, this is just the way that works for me. I’m hoping it helps you too!

Everything gets better with practice. Don’t feel bad if it takes a bit to get the hang of it.

Let me know what you think and happy binding!

    Thank you for taking time out to create a youtube video for us. I’ve said this before and it is very true:::your work and design are excellent, as well as, the video on binding. Thank you for all your hard work and all the attention you put into everything::details do matter even if it isn’t obvious.
