 PRINTER FRIENDLY INSTRUCTIONS COURSE INSTRUCTOR:  Deonn Stott of Quiltscapes  Here is my favorite "cinnamon roll" method to make bias strips.  Use whenever you need to bind a curve on any unfinished edge: quilt, jacket, armhole, apron, or make your own bias tape. COURSE SUPPLIES for QUILT BINDING:   Rotary Cutting Supplies:  Mat, Ruler, Rotary Blade Fabric:   Binding gives a defining edge to your quilt or garment.  I recommend using tone on tone, solids, or small motif, check, stripe or plaid.   Basically, avoid large prints, stripes or florals for best results.BIAS BINDING YARDAGE CHARTCrib size (40 x ... ...read more
