Easiest Quilt Binding Method EVER! Binding a Quilt with Clear Thread

easiest quilt binding method ever.  Binding a quilt with clear thread
I don't know about you, but after I have sewn together a quilt top, then basted, and finally quilted a quilt, the last thing I want to do is sit with a needle and thread and hand sew binding onto the quilt.

So here is my method for binding a quilt with no hand sewing required, just your regular ol sewing machine, a walking foot, and clear thread are all you need!
For more info on the type of machine I use and recommend head on over to our blog post

I first sew my binding onto the quilt like you would normally.

Then change your thread to clear thread in both the top thread and the bobbin.  Fold your excess binding over and hid it under your exposed binding and then sew as close to the edge as possible.

I'm inspired! That's saying a lot because I think I have the sewing machine with the lowest mileage on it ... ever! I've always wanted to make stuff and I think your post might have just given me the kick I need! Thank you for partying with us at Inspire Me Mondays. I hope you have a great weekend and look forward to seeing you at the Link-Up next week!

This is such a good tip! I agree, the last thing I want to do after all that work is sit down and hand stitch the binding!
