Double Four Patch Quilt Binding

My Double Four Patch quilt came back from my friend Eleni. So grateful to her for her quick and wonderful long-arm quilting!

I chose a dark blue fabric for the binding.

I prepared the binding strip. As I was in a hurry (my sister was coming soon to Greece to take delivery of it), I had no time to proceed as usual : machine sewing on the right side and then hand sewing on the back, so I decided to try, for the first time, machine sewing on both sides. For this I proceeded the opposite way from what I usually do :

I have been sewing the strip on the wrong side and then turning it on the right side, sewing very carefully on it. The end result is quite satisfying from my point of view.

  1. C'est toujours génial d'avoir une amie avec une Long-Arm !! Hi ! Hi !
    Et je fais comme toi pour le binding, à la machine cela permet de consolider le travail.
    Ton quilt va être très beau ....j'attends de le voir dans son intégralité.
    Bonne journée chère Christine et à bientôt !

  2. Congratulations on your BEAUTIFUL finish! I also like machine-sewn binding. It is quicker and more durable. Your sister can wash the quilt without worry.

  4. Oh my goodness I was just talking about this type of sewing of the binding last night. I have a double quilt that I just finished putting the binding on and now have to hand sew it. Not looking forward to it. I want it done! Do you have any tips on how to machine sew it on both sides?

  5. I too tried this way of sewing binding and it did save a lot of time! You have a lovely quilt there - lucky sister.

  6. I just did that today - machine sewed a binding strip down instead of hand sewing it. I didn't even think to sew it to the other side. Great idea - that way you can see exactly whether you are sewing the binding down properly!
