4 Methods of Finishing the Edges

4 Methods to Finishing the Edges

After your quilt is tied or quilted, the edges need to be finished. 
Decide how you want the edges of your quilt finished before layering the backing and batting with the quilt top.

"Pillow Binding" -or-  "Pre-binding"
This method is simply finishing your Quilt without a separate Binding - 
This is done before tying your quilt or even quilting it. 
  1. Place the batting on a flat surface lay it out straight. Next on top of the batting place your "top" fabric right side up. Then place the your back fabric right sidedown on top of the front fabric, or in other words place your right sides of you quilt together, and place on top of the batting- lay out straight and nice making sure there are no puckers, creases, or waves inyour fabric or batting.
