Single Fold Binding v Double Fold Binding

Whether it's single or double fold binding, binding is a method that we all do differently and today, Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings is here to show she does single and double fold binding. 

Let's first take a look at single fold binding. Single fold binding is great to use with small projects such as your mini quilts, mug rugs, and table toppers. Watch Lisa's video to see how you can try this method. 

Nest, is the double fold binding method that we often use in most of our quilts. Watch to learn Lisa's tips and tricks on how to join the ends of the strips and finishing the quilt. 

In both of Lisa's videos she likes to use Aurifil 50 wt. thread to machine stitch her binding strips onto her quilt and then use Aurifil 40 wt. to hand stitch her binding since it is thicker.
