I wanted to share with you my very favorite quilting tool. It’s The Binding Tool and it’s whole purpose it to help you match up those overlapping ends of binding perfectly every single time so that your binding fits exactly on your quilt AND is sewn together with an angled seam so you can’t even tell where you started and stopped the binding.
“The Binding Tool is a must have tool for every quilter. When you finish the last seam of the binding only an angle seam will work to reduce the bulk of this last step. The Binding Tool makes a perfect ending every time. Two measurements and two cuts and you’re on your way to a great finish. ”
Prior to buying this tool (It’s here online and of course in the shop) I used a couple methods – and they either weren’t pretty (they were bulky!) or they weren’t fast. (Looking up tutorials every single time you bind a quilt take a lot of time!) Now that I have this awesome ruler, it literally takes me less than 5 minutes. SO easy! I just mark where it tells me (and the instructions are printed on the ruler so you never loose them!) And perfect binding every single time. Seriously!
The fact that I use it on every single quilt, time after time after time after time (you get the idea) makes it a heck of a deal and something I think every quilter should own! (It’s here!)
