The next step is quilting and binding the t-shirt project.
I think this quilt will get lots of use, so I wanted to put lots of quilting on it.
I therefore chose to machine quilt this t-shirt quilt on my longarm machine.
You might choose to use your sewing machine, or hand quilt or even tie it.
Once the quilting is finished, it is time for the binding. On this quilt, I sewed the binding to the BACK of the quilt, then folded it around to the front and stitched it down.
You can use a straight stitch or a decorative stitch for this final step.
I can't wait to see John's reaction when he sees his t-shirts made into a quilt!!

Now to miter the corner.....
These instructions are given in detail on the "Learn to Quilt - Binding" page.
For the final step, I flip the quilt over, and top stitch the binding.
