Bias binding is my fave kind of binding. When I first started quilting I only did straight grain. I was so nervous to try bias binding. I don’t know why; but I was. Once I learned bias binding though I never went back.
Then fold it in half and press flat.
Attach the binding to the front of your quilt using a 1/4″ seam.
Leave a 10″to 12″ opening.
Cut a tiny strip off the left over binding. about 1/4″ by the width of binding.
Over lap the to ends of the binding.
Lay your tiny strip on top of the overlap lining up the edge with the back piece and then cut the top one of even with the other end of the tiny strip. See pics below.
Lay the ends on top on the bias and stitch across.
Before cutting off the ends fold back in half and make sure it is the right size to fit in the opening.
Then trim off the edges 1/4″ from seam.
Sew it down with a 1/4″ seam.
Hand sew binding down.
