How To Self-Bind A Quilt

Jenny demonstrates how to make a quick and easy Self-Binding Quilt using 2.5 inch strips of precut fabric (jelly roll). For this project, Jenny chose the "Cottage Bleu" Jelly Roll by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics. Note: The backing of this quilt needs to be 10 inches larger than the top. Jenny chose to create a classic Fence Rail quilt top with jelly roll strip sets and even quilted the top before adding the backing, but this technique can be used to add a self binding backing to any quilt!

Finish your masterpiece and let us give it the finishing touch it deserves.
