Bias Binding for the Accuquilt GO

I did some written instructions for the Accuquilt GO for 2-1/2 inch bias binding. Ebony Love did a youtube video showing this on the Studio Cutter here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mItQREJSs30

I was so inspired by seeing Ebony do this on the Studio Accuquilt that I wanted to do it for the Accuquilt GO. The instructions are basically the same as for cutting continuous bias, except that with the strip cutter, you cannot sew the fabric into a big loop for a continuous cut. But you can stitch it into a parallelogram so that all the strips come out the same length.  I calculated and added a chart for the yardage needed to get various lengths of bias binding.  There’s a great web page done by Shelley Rodgers, Dread Pirate Quilter who has lots of great information, including instructions for calculating how much bias binding one will get from any size fabric. Please let me know if you have any questions about any of this.
