    Binding.

    I really need a class on binding. I feel like I make these beautiful quilt tops and my long armer does excellent work and then it comes back to me to bind. Yuck! Anyone have any suggestions on a good way to bind? A foot for a Janone that would be of assistance?

    Re: Binding.

    I highly recommend Susan Clevelands craftsy class, how to bind a quilt. She explains everything from the very beginning to more complex things like piping an prairie points. I purchased it last year and use it still when I am unsure how to do things right.

    There is an attachment for Janome machines to sew bindings on, I watched a YouTube video recently, I never tried it. For me it looks complicated and I don't like the look of the binding. By the way I love hand sewing my bindings on, it's quite meditative.

    And I use the small walking foot that came with my Janome 8900 to attach the binding strips it works great!

        I finally found a binding technique that works for me. I am seriously challenged with Jenny's method and always get the binding fouled up. Heirloom Creations has a simple fix that I use all the time now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWh90tXr7g4

          I love Susan Clevelands class, also. I find myself going back and watching the joining part over when I get to that part. She is so fun to watch!

            The tutorials offered at MSQ just need your hand and some practice. I make a sampler for practicing piecing, quilting and binding. What works well for one may need a bit of tweaking by another.

              There is a FREE class on Craftsy - Piece, Patch, Quilt - Basic Quiltmaking Skills with Gail Kessler. She goes over everything from fabric selection to binding and labeling.

                It's not necessary to have that overlay that she uses with her machine. Just press that 45 deg. angle with your iron. I always trim selvedges off before sewing binding strips together. I also do not press my binding strips ahead of time. I just fold them as I sew. I use a regular walking foot to sew on the binding. I think you have to do binding the way it's most comfortable for you.

                    Rob Appell from Man Sewing has a good tutorial as well. Regarding the bi-level foot that he uses: I had previously purchased that foot based on some recommendations from other people on this forum and it has made a HUGE difference in helping make my bindings look as good as my quilt tops.

                    Note that I don't use the binding tool. Bought it but could never get it to work correctly. I use Jenny's method in her Ultimate Binding Tutorial for that Joining the ends begins around 9 : 04 in the video.
