I collected my Scandinavian Christmas quilt from J-Quilts at the weekend. I used a dark red fabric from my box of "Lynette" fabrics for the binding, which I cut into 3.5" strips ready to make a double fold binding. The binding was machined into place on the front of the quilt, then folded over to the back. Clover Binding Clips are perfect for holding the binding in place. Aurifil thread in a shade to match the quilt backing was used for the ladder stitch - this means the stitches are almost in visible! the corners are mitred, and look very neat on both the front and the back of the quilt. The quilt label was also machined into place along the lower edge of the label before the binding is hand stitched into place.
