How to Bind a Large Wall Quilt


Crabtree’s (left panel), a commission quilt by Laura Wasilowski

It has come to my attention that I’ve made very few large quilts in the last few years. Large, to me, means anything bigger than 20″ x 20″. (Unlike common opinion, I believe smaller is better.)

But I did make 3 large pieces this Spring. They are companion pieces, a commission for a lovely family in Kansas. Each panel measures about 32″ w x 48″ h. They flow together and tell the story of their family and places they’ve lived.

It was important that the transition from one panel to the next be unbroken by a binding. So I used a Faced Binding on each panel. The Faced Binding is the latest addition to my list of Tutorials. I hope you enjoy it and can find a use for it on your next large wall quilt.

  1. Love your quilt! and the directions for the faced binding! I copied the Tutorial and printed it (after I made the photos just large enough to see to save printer ink) Thanks you very much!

  2. This panel is bright and colorful. Is there somewhere to see the other two panels? Thanks so very much for the binding instructions. I love all of your tutorials because the directions are so clear.
