Now Cut your binding fabric into 2″ strips and attach them together until you have a strip that is long enough to go around the entire quilt. Press the strip in half.

Full disclosure I don’t ever measure, which means I end up with lots of extra binding because I want to make sure I have enough. You could measure the sides and then add a bit for each corner that you will have to turn.Easter Mini Quilt Tutorial : This mini quilt is great for beginners.

You can attach it by hand or with your machine. I am a machine kinda girl!
