What Quilt Binding do you prefer?

 While trying to perfect my quilting technique's I binding needs work! I found the perfect way to sew it on the quilt, double fold with mitered corners, I learned its also easier to Elmer's glue it down before sewing it on, its easier then pinning it!
      Some people might like the "stitch in the ditch" method. This is just using the sewing machine to sew the back side on, with or without the raw edge showing.
      You might prefer the more finished look the "blind stitch" also known as the" ladder stitch". This is a more Fancy of a look! Here are some photos of finished looks....

This is the fancy look the Blind stitch done by hand.

This is the Stitch in the ditch method with a raw edge more of a Pottery Barn look!

Raw Edge Strip Quilt

So there you have it the Question of the day! Which do you prefer? Maybe you like both! Depending on  what you are looking for, either way I like them both!

Loves and hugs,


  1. I like them both. But the pottery barn looking one is super cute, going to try it! Thanks Jada =)

  2. That raw edge is drawing me in! Love it!
