Fusions Brushworks - Fuschia 2 -1/2" binding

This binding is made from Robert Kaufman Fusions Brushworks fabric.  It is NOT cut on the bias, so is suitable for quilts with straight edges.  This reduces the stretching of the fabric while applying.  However, it is pieced diagonally to reduce the bulk at the seams.

Although the fabric manufacturer named this "Fuschia" to distinguish it from other colors in the line, there is as much great red as there is fuschia.  With the gold, this would be a great way to dress up a Christmas or formal quilt.

It is ready to apply, either by stitching to the back of your quilt, pressing and folding to the front, and machine stitching on the front...or by stitching to the front, pressing and folding to the back, and hand-stitching to the back.

If you are new to machine stitching binding, or have difficulty sewing very stright along the very edge of the binding, please consider a flanged binding instead of this straight binding.  The flange is 1/8" wide, and using a matching or invisible thread and going slowly, it is much easier to stay within the flange while stitching.

To calculate how many yards you will need, measure the height and width of your quilt in inches.
Height x 2 = _____ inches.
Width x 2 = _____ inches.
Add these two numbers together to determine the complete perimiter length of your quilt.  Add 10-12 inches to this amount to allow for corners and sewing the ends together.
Divide that number by 36 to determine how many yards you will need.  Round UP so that you will have a little more than you need rather than less than you need.
If you are not completely comfortable with your math, or are new to calculating binding, you may contact us with your order and tell us the size of your quilt and we will confirm the amount needed.
