How to Bind a Quilt: 12 NEW Quilt Binding and Finishing Methods for Your Art Quilts - Quilting Arts

HALF the battle to actually FINISHING  that quilt or wall hanging is figuring out how to do the binding. Here's the link to a free e-book from our friends at chock full of ideas for getting the job done.

It's a quick, FREE 2.3 MB download, and your Acrobat Reader will open in this colorful book in a jiffy. So if you are into a bias tape mitered edge, plan on using the backing as the frame, or are dealing with a non-traditional "arsty" shaped wall hanging, this book is for you. They've even got one project where the quiltis mounted on a stretcher frame as if it were an oil painting.

These folks at Quilting Arts Magazine think outside the box.
