My Favorite Binding Tutorials

For months I’ve been trying to find time to write a binding tutorial. But I think sometimes when you keep pushing a task to the bottom of the to-do list, it’s a sign that it’s just not the right time for that project. What inspired me to write one was I wanted to have a go-to source for instructions when I teach my sister how to quilt this summer (yes, I’ve converted a family member to join in my quilting mania!!!!).

Instead, I put together this list of my favorite binding resources online. These seem to be the easiest to understand and have the clearest pictures. It will be nice to refer back to as I’m teaching… and there’s also I few techniques I’ve never tried. I thought I’d share to in case you are also looking and don’t want to wade through 100 different tutorials 🙂
