Self-binding a quilt – Tiny quilt QAL

Self-binding is binding a quilt with the quilt backing.

I like using self-binding for small quilts and wall hangings.

We’re going to finish the Tiny quilt with self-binding.

And this tutorial concludes our Tiny Quilt QAL. I hope you enjoyed it.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. thank you for this tutorial I did not know how to do self binding you made it look so easy. I will be doing it.


  2. Thanks for this tutorial. I’ve done this on several quilts and always seem to end up with a strange looking corner. Not an ugly corner but still not as neat as yours
