Illustrated Sewing Tutorial - How to Sew the Butterfly Quilt Wall Hanging 3 - Adding the Binding, Stitching the Appliques and Adding the Hanging Loops

Seam allowance is already included. In all of the sewing steps, sew with the pressure foot along the edge of the fabric. That is approximately a 7mm or 1/4” seam allowance.

1. Take your bias fabric and pin it along the long edges of your quilt. Sew in place and remove the pins.

2. Then you will sew the bias fabric onto the two short edges. For the beginning and end of these edges, fold about 1 cm bias fabric under to give it a neat edge.

3. Now you will be stitching a line down the middle of the quilt where the blocks join. This is called “stitching-in-the-ditch”. Also do this to between the rows. This process holds the quilt together invisibly.

4. Set your sewing maching to a tight zig-zag stitch and now stitch around all of the details of the butterfly. Start with the wings and finish with the body.
