{QAL} Binding your quilt

Wow, this is the final post in the QAL - next week (the 11th January) link ups will open for all of you who have been quilting along. I'm thinking we'll leave the linky open for a week, so you'll have until the 18th to link up. The prize winners will be randomly drawn from all the entries, and I'll use to pick the winners!

 I'd like to say a massive thank you to all of you for joining us on this quilty journey, it's been a pleasure seeing so many different interpretations of all the blocks.

So before I get onto the binding info, I'd like to share some of the finished quilt tops (permission was given from everyone for me to share these).

Right! So binding your quilt.

You will need 1/2 yard of fabric to bind the Twin sized quilt. If you're making a smaller version, my binding tutorial tells you how to work out how many strips you need to cut. Please just send me an email if you have any questions.

I wrote my binding tutorial a while ago (which I just updated tonight) but this is still how I bind quilts. There are loads of variations on how to do it though, my way is definitely not the only (or probably best) way - but it works for me :o)

Have a great weekend - we're in the middle of a crazy heat wave (40 degrees celcius today which is just not normal for our neck of the woods...) so we'll probably hide inside ;o)
