    It does look interesting, I wish she would have demonstrated turning at the corners, it is easy or fussy with the yarn?

      Have any of you tried this? I also wonder about the corners. It is a cool idea . Thanks for posting it Chelea

        I haven't tried it but it's so intriguing...I might just give it a go on a practice sandwich to see how it works with the corners.

          That is brilliant for a quilt that's made to be loved! You get a gorgeous, strong binding and it goes super fast. I agree with everyone else, however, that it would have been nice to see her do a corner.

            I have no idea why someone would want to bind a quilt with yarn. (?)
            it just doesn’t seem like it would be durable. Fabric bindings are durable
            especially for quilts that are washed frequently. Fabric and yarn just doesn’t seem like a good combination
            for a quilt in my opinion.

              Check out the video if you can. She sews the yarn onto the fold of the binding then proceeds as normal with a machine binding. The yarn inside the binding acts like a guide to keep your stitching line straight.

            Finally watched the video.
            This method requires you to buy
            2 specialty feet.

              Well, the video is from a sewing store that sells Bernina -- what did you expect? ;-)

            It's interesting. I'm going to try it sometime.
