Accuquilt GO Bias Binding Video

This sure took awhile, but I think it’s worth it. This makes bias binding using the GO cutter. One still has to sew the strips together as we do with straight binding, but this is bias. I haven’t tried it with strip cutters other than the 2 1/2 inch, but am sure it will work on any of them.

This works best for an 18 inch x width of fabric piece of fabric. It would seem that if you used a narrower width of fabric strip that you would cover less of the die, but in fact, the part folded over the die becomes wider and there is more waste. Thus 16-20 inches is the size that works best. If you use a width of fabric strip that is wider than 18-20 inches, you will have more than 6 layers somewhere on the die.

If you really do need less bias binding, you could try a fabric square (25 inches or less) pressed in the middle with the bias fold lined up with the blade and then folded to fit the die.

Enjoy!
