13″ X 19″
Soiree Honey Bun
1 Fat Quarter backing fabric
Batting at least 20 inches X 15 inches
Layout your honey bun strips and choose 18.
Cross cut the strips at 6 inches. Flip the strip and trim to 5 1/2 inches X 1 1/2 inches.
Start near the bottom middle…just because…and I leave a “tail” of about 3-4 inches.
When I reach a corner I stop sewing and flip the ‘loose’ end of the binding strip straight up and then fold it back down on itself.
Joining the binding is a bit tricky. I also miter this junction. Here’s how:
Overlap the 2 loose binding strips and trim so that it overlaps the width of your binding. My overlap is 1 1/2 inches.
Now the tricky part. You must pin the loose portion of the binding strip correctly. I pick the strips up and hold them at a 90 degree angle to each other and pin.
One doll quilt… I sincerely hope that this will inspire all of you to quilt today! Vickie @ Mid-ohio knitter.
