Big Stitch Binding

If you’re like me, you’ve probably seen people doing a newer binding technique that is referred to as “big stitch binding”. It is basically the brother to big stitch quilting, of which I am a huge fan. Up until last week I hadn’t tried big stitch binding and I am kicking myself for not trying it sooner. It was so easy and added SUCH a fun accent to the client quilt I was binding.

There are a few basic tutorials out there, but if you are comfortable with binding, you can likely figure it out even with out a tutorial. However, if you are interested in a tutorial, Kitchen Table Quilting has a fabulous one with photos.

The supplies required are exactly the same as those I’ve linked on my hand quilting post HERE.

I will definitely be doing big stitch binding on my next quilt where it seems like it will fit in stylistically. I found it to be much quicker and easier than normal binding!
