Diane B. Corrections for January 21st class

Machine binding tips and tricks, January 21st—Diane Bourg

We will be binding two placemats by machine, and I will show you some tips for making the start/end of your binding “invisible” and for reducing bulk at the corners.

For this class you will need:

1.      Three Four strips, 2 ½” wide by WOF for binding
2.      Two pieces of fabric 17 ½” by 13 ½” for the tops
3.      Two pieces of batting (same size as top)
4.      Two pieces of fabric (same size as top) for the back
Put the 3 layers together and quilt the placemats before class, but do NOT piece the binding.

OR
Three Four strips of binding fabric and two pieces of double-faced, pre-quilted fabric 17 ½” by13 1/2”


You will also need your sewing machine and walking foot, marking pen or pencil that shows up on your binding, 6 inch ruler, seam ripper, fabric scissors, and the usual sewing supplies.  Use thread that matches the binding.
