Back Cover Information
Binding with piping adds flair to quilts with a distinctive touch that shows attention to detail. I think of binding as the crowning glory to my quiltsthe last chance to do something special! It frames a simple piece so beautifully and takes heirloom or show quilts to a new level. Piping also looks great on wearables where detail will definitely be appreciated and admired.
I've covered all my best tips in these instructions including my tail-joining technique quilters love! Many tips are ones you'll use for other tasks as they involve getting the most from your machine to increase accuracy.
The Groovin Piping Trimming Tool is used to trim piping seam allowances to a consistent width. When piping is sewn, it is impossible to maintain a consistent seam allowance. Trimming seam allowances using a traditional acrylic ruler is a time consuming chore but the Groovin' Piping Trimming Tool makes this task quick and accurate.(Rotary cutting equipment is needed to use this tool.)
Enjoy making your quilts even more special by adding piping in the binding!
