To quilt this quilt, I stitched in the ditch down every couple of rows. Stitch in the ditch means sewing along the seams, so the thread is pretty much hidden on the front. It does make a line pattern on the back.
To make a binding, cut strips 2.5″ wide and press over 1/2″.
Pin the unfolded edge to the quilt.
Sew it on at 1/2″ then fold the folded edge around the quilt and to the top. Pin it on.
I haven’t made a quilt in years, so it was nice to delve into it again with a really simple strip piecing technique! And a few pleats, of course! My favorite part of this quilt was putting together all the pretty fabrics. I used a whole lot of my stash up!
