Facets Quilt Along Week 8 – Binding

If you’ve been following along each step of the Facets Quilt Along, it’s now time to bind your quilt! If you are just now finding my blog, you can still make one from the beginning – all of the blog posts are here.

Although there are a million different ways to bind your quilt, I pretty much stick with one main method for binding and then finish either by hand or machine. To help you out, here are a couple of binding tutorials for you to reference:

My tutorial on basic quilt binding.
Binding by machine. (This one is older but still relevant.)

Prizes to be awarded next week!

As mentioned previously, everyone who participates in the Quilt Along and shares at least one picture of their progress on my Facebook group is eligible to win. You have from now until next Thursday, March 31st to share your pics. I’ll pick the winners on Friday morning and announce them here and the blog and on Facebook. Here’s a recap of the prizes:

  1. Everyone who shares a pic wins a free PDF pattern of their choice from my Craftsy shop.CQ-Patterns

2. Three random Grand Prize winners will each win a signed copy of my book (you choose which one),  a charm pack of my Kona solids, and an Aurifil thread spool of your choice from The Precut Store. Random winners will be chosen from all of the entries – the more times you entered (up to once per week), the more chances you have. Max entries is 8 per person (one for each step of the quilt along).

3. One bonus prize entry for those who complete their quilt by March 31. One winner will receive a jelly roll of their choice from The Precut Store.

Even if you are just getting started, be sure to share your progress over on Facebook at Quilt with Christa! And yes, if you cram and get more than one step done per week, you can still share and enter!
