I get a lot of questions about how I make my bias binding.
Couldn't be easier. Let me walk you through it!
I'm working with a yard of fabric for a queen sized quilt.
Cut off the selvedge.
Open your piece of fabric all the way up.
We are working with a rectangle.
Take the lower right hand corner and
fold it on a diagonal so the left edges are even.
Now pick up the lower left hand point
and fold it over to the upper right.
Take point "A" and fold over to point "B".
Just keep wrapping it around.
You're finished folding and ready to start cutting.
In reference to the AB folded edges, trim about 1/4" from the fold.
This is the point that you will start to cut your desired width of strips.
The beautiful part of bias strip making is that
your strip ends are already cut at a
diagonal ready to be sewn together.
Anytime you sew diagonals, you have to have a 1/4" point hanging off both ends in order for your strips edges to have a straight finish.
