Tutorial Alert! The legend of the “Continuous Bias Binding”

While out and about in blogland today, I stumbled on Bitter Purl‘s awesome tutorial for making a continuous bias binding.  I’ve heard the age-old myth that such a thing existed…and…you guys, it’s TRUE.

Making continuous binding means that you don’t ever mismatch the ends of your bias strips, or goof up the right and wrong sides of the fabric!  Pure genius, I tell you! Pure. Genius.  In her post, Yahaira shows us in gorgeous photos exactly what to do!

Yes, you can use this on quilts, but also on potholders, tote bags, along garment edges, AND just make narrower strips to use anywhere that you’d typically use handmade bias tape. (Like for binding any raw edges where you’d like the tape to either match or coordinate with the main fabric!)

Thanks, Yahaira, for sharing this with us!
