Quick Answer: How do you sew blanket binding together?

What size should a quilt binding be?

Cut enough strips (bias or crossgrain) to go around the quilt plus 8″ for cornering and seams. Strip width can vary from 2″ to 2 1/2″ and even wider if you prefer a larger binding than the traditional 1/4″ width. Quilt binding strips are generally sewn together with a diagonal seam for the most inconspicuous joining.

Do you tie a quilt before binding?

If the quilt you plan to tie will be bound with standard strip binding around the outer edges, tie the knots before you bind the quilt.

How do you finish the edges on a fleece blanket?

Once you have your fleece fabric cut to the dimensions you want it to be, all you need to do is finish your blanket. You can finish a fleece blanket with a simple folded hem, by adding fringe to the edges and tying it into knots, or by weaving fringe loops around the blanket’s edges to create a braided edge.
