Once the quilting is complete, it’s time to get the layers of your quilt sandwich bound together. It’s that final step that adds a frame to your artwork!
Binding Services are available here at the Cottage if you need a little extra help with this important last step. I can send back your quilt completely finished and ready to gift/use. Or choose just which steps you would like some assistance with.
Machine sewing binding to front of the quilt only.
Send along the fabric you your quilt's binding and I will prepare the binding strips and attach it to the front of the quilt. Once I know your quilt dimensions we can decide how much fabric you will need to include. With this option, you will only need to stitch the binding on the back in whichever way you prefer.
Machine Sewing binding to both front and back
Machine sewing binding to front of the quilt as above, PLUS machine stitching binding to the back. This option means you will get a completed quilt returned to you!
Heirloom Hand Binding
Machine sewing binding to the front of your quilt. But, for an heirloom quality finish, the binding is turned to the back and stitched in place with nearly invisible hand stitching.
How to Figure Cost of Binding
Binding is based on linear inch of stitching. Add the measurement of each side together
or (Height + Length) x2.
Example: If your quilt top measures 56 wide by 72 long
56 + 72 = 128 Double that to include all 4 sides
128 X 2 = 256 linear inches
Option 1: 256 linear inches x 0.10 = $25.60
Option 2: 256 linear inches x 0.25 or a final cost for binding of $64.00
Labeling your quilt is an extra, yet meaningful part of a quilt's story! If you would like a custom, one of a kind label embroidered for the back of your quilt, visit my friend Kayla at Patchwork River Quilting. She makes beautiful embroidered labels to your specification. This fabric label can then be stitched onto the quilt backing.
