How do you bind a narrow quilt?

What width do you cut quilt binding?

Cut the binding strips to a width of 2.75”. This is my favorite width for double fold binding— not too narrow and not too wide but just right in my opinion. Cut the binding strips with a rotary cutter and quilting ruler just like you cut strips to make 9-patch blocks in my 9-patch quilt tutorial.

Can you use bias tape to bind a quilt?

Open one side of the bias tape. … Starting two inches from one end of the bias, sew the binding to the quilt with a ¼-inch seam allowance, stopping your seams ¼ inch before each corner and then starting the next seam ¼ inch after the corner.
