Whole Cloth Quilt Binding

 by Tim Latimer

I have been working on this whole cloth quilt since November. 

I finished all the hand quilting, and now I will be adding trapunto (some has been done already) and binding.

I am using piping for the binding.  Here is how I am dong it:

First I hand stitch the piping to the top layer only, about 1/2 inch from the last row of quilting stitches.
I am using purchased piping that I bought at the fabric store.
After the piping is stitched on to the top I trim the top, backing and batting .

I turn under the edges of the piping, and the backing and pin
Then blind stitch the back to the piping
and here is the front
I will post some more pictures when I finish .

Happy Quilting


  1. I am amazed and inspired by your beautiful quilting. I can only dream of reaching that destination.

  2. This is an awesome quilt. I recall my grandmothers and aunts, and mother always quilted.
    In response to Karen's question on my blog about where to get feedsack cloth, I suggest Googling the subject to find where you can order this cloth.
