This is a fast and easy way to make bias binding. Using this method makes over 3 yards of binding. Therefore, if you are making a big quilt, you should use a bigger square of fabric. Comment below to let me know how much you need, and I’ll let you know what size of square you need. I said this was fast and easy, so let’s get started.

How to make bias binding:
Prewash fabric. Iron wrinkles out. Square up one edge.
Cut an 18″ square. Right side facing you, cut a 45 degree diagonal from upper left corner to lower right corner, using a rotary mat, rotary cutter, and quilting ruler.
Take right side and flip over to left side.
Sew 1/4″ seam.
Press seam open.
Lay out on mat lengthwise with wrong side up. Using quilting ruler, mark lines every 2 1/2″ on entire piece.
Put a pin through each line 1/4″ down matching up the marked lines. You will have a little triangle sticking out on each end.
Sew 1/4″ seam allowance. Press seam open.
Using a good pair of scissors, cut on each line that you marked. This will make a continuous length of bias. It will make 3 yards of bias binding.
Press in half lengthwise with wrong sides together.
If you would rather watch a video on all this process, I made a YouTube Video for you to follow along. I really hope you will attempt to make your binding like this. This saves so much material, and you don’t have those triangle pieces of fabric laying around.
