Are you a quilt binding purist, or do you look for short cuts when it comes to attaching quilt binding? I hate to sew on binding. Both Sharon Schamber and Deb Karasik have a method for using Elmer’s School Glue for attaching binding. So I decided to attach the binding to Starry Starry Night totally by machine. It came out pretty good, but there is always room for improvement. This quilt is a class sample, if it were for a quilt show I would probably sew it on by hand.
Only use a water soluble glue such as Elmer’s School Glue. You can order the Glue Tips from Sharon Schamber and see her binding video at:
Fiber Artist Deb Karasik also has a free detailed binding lesson at:
Make your binding as usual. Sew onto the back of your quilt as you would for the front. Press binding toward the edge of the quilt.
