Pieced Bias Binding

Jazz up your finished quilt with diagonal-stripe, pieced binding. Begin with easy-to-piece strip sets, then cut bias segments for binding.

Seam It Together


Cut 42"-long strips on the crosswise straight grain in the desired width or widths. The strips may be cut in uniform or varying widths.

Join the strips with 1/4" seam allowances to make a striped binding set. Press the seam allowances open. Repeat to make the desired number of binding sets.

Finish Up


Prepare the continuous bias strip as for double-fold (French-fold) binding. With raw edges aligned, join the pieced binding to the quilt. (For more details about adding binding to a quilt, along with step-by-step photos for turning corners, see our tips for better binding.)

Turn the binding over the edge of the quilt to the back. Hand-stitch the binding to the backing fabric, making sure to cover the binding stitching line.
