Quilts can be very pleasing to look at because of how nicely they’re stitched and hoe neatly their edges are bound. This is why those who quilt as a hobby as so proud of their quilting; it’s a lot of fun for them and once they achieve the perfect quilting result at the end of their project, they feel so fulfilled. However, if your quilt turns out not as great as you though it would then it’s easy to get a little discouraged.
The perfect quilt is neat at every turn and the edges are seamlessly bound. To achieve these results you have to be very precise with every little stitch you make in your fabric; you’ll have to be very careful with every turn and fold so your work stays neat and precise. However, there might be a limit to how neat and precise you can be because no matter how skilled you are, there’s always room for human error. Fortunately though, you can eliminate human error by using a bias binding foot in your quilting projects.
If you’re new to using this tool, then you’ll want to read on to learn how to use your bias binding foot to the best effect.
Make sure that all your raw edges are aligned neatly and without too much bulk so you can bind them nice and easily. You can do this by trimming them till they’re aligned.
Your bias binding foot can accommodate folds of varying widths, which you can measure using the given scale markings. Once you’ve adjusted the binding width, you need to turn the screw till it touches the centre of the fold you’re binding to ensure that it feeds in straight.
