Quilt Binding goes around the outer edge of the quilt. It is a long strip of fabric that is sometimes cut on the bias. Binding can match the border fabric or it can be a different fabric. Not all quilts have binding. Quilts that have binding will last longer (or at least the edges will) than quilts without binding.
Double Fold Binding is one of the most popular types of binding. Click on the links below to find out how to make this and how to attach it to your quilt.
