Backing as a Binding Tutorial


Backing as a binding Tutorial

When you are finished with quilting your quilt you have a few options on how to bind your quilt.
Have you ever taken in the consideration of using your backing as a binding?
Well, if you never have there are some benefits to this method. 
  1. First off its budget friendly.
  2. If you ever find yourself in a time crunch and have to have the quilt finished ASAP this method is a lifesaver and it can be meant to be a temporary solution.
  3. If you do not have enough material around to match the quilt to make binding look at your backing it should all ready match your quilt top.
  4. If your backing is scrappy it will give your binding a more interesting appeal.
  5. It is an old school way of binding your quilt.
