5. Measure the length of your project and add at least 6” (15cm).

the strips together. Cut the end of the strip into a point.
7. Slide the fabric strip into the binder with the wrong side facing you

back 2.5” (5-6cm) behind the needle.

How to sew a quilt binder corner:
Sew to the edge of the quilt, tie off and then pull the quilt out from binder. Keep the quilt close to the binder when folding the corners. Finger press the folded fabric.
* When fitted with 412964206 or 412964207 stitch plate
Create a mitered corner:
1. Fold and pinch the top mitered corner, pin in place with a long
pin. Repeat in the same way on the back of the quilt.
2. To continue sewing the binding, pull the fabric strip back through
the binder and at the same time place the quilt back under the
presser foot and into the binder again.
3. To insure that the fold is right on both top and back, pull the quilt
forward and back again a couple of times.
4. Lower the needle to hold the binding in place and remove the
needles. Pull out long thread tails behind the presser foot before start to sew. Backstitch and sew the binder in place. Repeat on the other corners.
How to end the binding:
1. Sew the binding all the way around the quilt edges. When the
edges off the binding almost meet, cut the excess of fabric in the
beginning of binding as illustration.
2. Continue to sew, overlapping the binding one more time. Remove
the quilt from the binder and trim excess leaving 1” (2.5) cm tail. Fold back the opening and pin in place. Sew a seam over the folded edge.
NOTE: See detailed instructions included with the attachment.
