As part of our Tuesday Tutorial series, I’m delighted to tell you about our free Quilt Binding video tutorial lessons, just one of the many wonderful Quilting 101 videos we have created especially for you! In our first binding lesson, we show you how to join all those strips you have set aside from your most recent McCall’s Quilting or McCall’s Quick Quilts pattern. Sherri Bain Driver demonstrates how to join quilt binding strips using diagonal seams. No lumps, no bumps, just smooth, perfect quilt binding, ready to apply. After you watch the first free quilt binding lesson, print the page for a handy reference in your sewing studio.
Whenever I learn a quilting technique, I’m inspired to start a new project! If you’re looking for inspiration, pick up our newest issue of McCall’s Quilting or McCall’s Quick Quilts—both are available from our Quilt and Sew Shop in print or instant digital download versions. Many of our most popular quilt patterns are also available as individual downloads—click here for a quick peek! And don’t miss our most recent special interest publication, Vintage Quilts Inspirations.
