Read all instructions before you start cutting your fabric. Measure your quilt at the middle from side to side. Cut 2 strips this length Measure your quilt at the middle from top to bottom. Add 4 inches to this measure and cut 2 strips this length
Cut your strips for binding on the straight of grain. Cut binding strips about 1 3/4 to 2 1/2 inches wide. This is determined by the batting and size of the quilt. To join strips together to get the correct length, cut the fabric on a 45 degree angle, stitch together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Be sure to press seams open. If you have trouble sewing correctly on the 45 degree angle, cut and sew simple straight seams.
fold each strip in half and press with an iron, wrong sides together. Starting at the bottom of the quilt, attach binding to front side of quilt with raw edges matched to the raw edges of the quilt. Using 1/4 inch seam, begin stitching through all three layers of the quilt, making sure to use a larger stitch to accommodate the thickness of the quilt layers.
