Here is my Sunny Baby Quilt. It's a quilt to make for a friend who's going to give birth to a baby girl in this summer!

Here's the back of the quilt. I back it with the cotton fleece. The finished size for this quilt is
35 1/2"x41" .
After doing some quilts, I discovered a brilliant foot for binding a quilt. If you are using a Bernina sewing machine you can try to get Bernina Edgestitch foot 10D . There is a guide blade in the center of the foot which can help to guide the edge of your binding on the quilt. I believe you can get this foot from the online sewing machine shops or any of your local sewing machine shops. I got mine from the Bernina Malaysia.

Can you see where did I place the guiding blade? It's right next to the edge of my red binding strip.
So, question, how about the needle position? I set -2 to the right so that the needle will sew right at the edge of my binding strip.

Tada...... nicely done! Isn't this foot is doing a smart job? What a cleaver invention! Thanks Bernina.

You may have other way of doing your binding or could be other perfect foot for the binding. Come and drop me a line to share your experience with me.
