How to Attach a Bias Binding Edge

quitebibkit

This is our Aiden & Ava Bib, we made these years ago and they are still one of our most popular patterns. It makes total sense that they are always a favorite because they are adorable, reversible, stay on your child and simple to make. The only part that seems to make people a little nervous is attaching the bias binding edge, but it is so simple! And to show you how easy we decided to make a little tutorial.  This bias binding edge is also a great way to finish off any bib you design, pockets, a neckline and many other sewn items. Click the following link to download our tutorial, and get sewing whether its with our bib design or one of your very own.  Simple Bias Binding Edge Tutorial

If you would like to give our Aiden & Ava Bibs a try, we offer them in kits with the same adorable fabrics we have used, plus pre-cut bias strips. Or if you like to pick your own fabrics, you can just get a PDF version of the pattern.

The picture below shows the back view of our bibs, which when turned inside out is the reverse side of the bib, it can be worn on either side.

This is one of my very favorite dresses made for me by Jeanette (my MIL and the other Pipers Girl). It also has the same bias binding edge around the collar and on the edge of the short sleeves.

Rainy Day

This is our latest Quilt design, Rainy Day. I just love it! I am going to try to steal it for myself to hang on the wall in my daughters room. It is mostly applique, with only pieced borders to add a little scrappy fun. The finished quilt is 48″ X 60″, perfect for a little ones bed or to hang as I want to do. We used the Apliquick tools and machine applique for this quilt, check out our tutorial if you would like to give them a try. Remember April showers bring May flowers!

Picket Fences

This is my Picket Fences quilt. I made it years ago and its one of my very favorite quilts. It is usually on my couch or my son drags it into his bed, or I do, its the perfect throw size for cuddling up in. In my family it has been well loved and washed a million times and just seems to get better and better. I have been asked for the pattern a lot lately because of pics I had posted on my Instagram, so I decided to share it as a Free Pattern. It is great for using up lots of scraps and I really think you could make it with the background in any color. Click the link below for the pattern and make one for you family to love.

Cheese

This is one of my very favorite quilts that I have ever made and just happens to be one of the easiest and quickest to finish. I even did the machine quilting myself on my regular Pfaff machine. It was featured years ago in the Better Homes & Gardens magazine Quilts and More but since it is now retired from that, I have decided to add it to our Free patterns. It is a great go to quilt when you have a beautiful collection of fabrics that hold their own and you don’t want to chop them up to much. Or if you just want to showcase some favorite prints together. This quilt is a combo of designs I loved from 3 of my favorite fabric companies, Adornit, Riley Blake & Alexander Henry. I hope you enjoy the pattern and make one or a few. I’m planning on starting one with the Everyday Eden Fabrics combined with some other faves from my stash. We also have a tutorial to help with achieving perfect points  on your triangles.

Enjoy!
