After a little research I found what I was looking for!This is the video that shows, among other amazing things, his method for doing a machine binding. I found it at the library and watched the chapter about the binding last night.
This technique is actually very similar to how I did the binding on the Crutch Bag Project and too, how I do my neckline trims on knits, stitching the binding to the Wrong side (or Back) and turning it over to the front for finishing. Funny I guess how references can be found in many places!
Here is one of Ricky Tims’ quilts (the Fire Dragon Rhapsody). Do you see that little binding accent? Look closely, I know, it’s subtle from far away on a big quilt.But what I really wanted to see was the technique for putting in the accent piping. This is what I’m going to do to finish off the Carolina Christmas Mystery Quilt. Ricky said it would probably take about 5 hours to complete so I’m thinking this weekend will be the opportune time to tackle it.
It will be nice to get it all done, photographed and get on to the next big project! I have so many that I want to finish!
Let me know if any of you have put on this piped machine binding to a quilt. I’d love to hear your feedback!
