Straight Strip Binding

This method of binding is most suitable for rectangular quilts that don’t have curved or complicated edges. The binding can be cut crosswise from the fabric, and is not sewn together into one continuous strip as in bias binding. It is attached to the quilt by aligning the raw edge of the binding material with the raw edge of the quilt sandwich, right sides facing, and sewing through all three layers of the quilt, usually using a ¼" seam allowance. To finish, the binding is folded over to the front of the quilt and slip stitched in place, similar to bias binding.
