Binding Application Trick
Dear walking-foot creators:
Please design a walking foot that has a 1/4" mark or edge for quilters. Problem: There is no marking that allows us to sew a straight 1/4" line when applying our bindings...and I want the judge to avoid criticizing this binding.
Since this will take a while to implement, I decided to design my own solution to the binding edge problem. I used a sliver of soap and marked my binding, measuring from the folded edge, 3/4" all the way down the length of the binding. That gave me a perfect 1/4" line to follow down the edge of the quilt!
The corners of this quilt binding were so easy to to fold!
