Janome Quilt Along! – Introduction including supply list
Can you believe we’re at the end? We just have to add the binding and we have a quilt which we can look back on as a sample for different quilting designs and techniques. I mostly quilt with my walking foot, so it was a great experience for me to step out of my comfort zone to try free motion quilting and to work with rulers. I hope you have learned along the way as well.
I mostly hand bind my quilts, but this is a sewing machine blog to help you get the most from your machine, so I am showing you a way to bind your quilt completely by machine.
There are many ways to bind your quilt and a few of them are done completely by machine. This is just one example.
To attach the binding, I used my Janome AcuFeed Flex Dual Feed System on my Janome 6700P. The Dual/Twin AcuFeed Flex Foot Holder has more than one foot that can be attached to it, so for binding, I used the Janome AcuFeed Flex 1/4″ Foot (OD) and the Janome AcuFeed Flex Ditch Quilting Foot (SD).
