## Where do breasts go when binding?

The binder should fit snugly around your shoulders and chest, providing an even compression. Adjust the binder. Move your breasts in a position that feels comfortable, yet compressed. In the end, your binder should feel like a larger, tighter sports bra.

## Can you quilt without backing?

Step 1: Quilt Blocks

You can transform any quilt block into quilt-as-you-go by simply quilting the finished block to a matching square of batting. Do not attach backing at this time. Simply quilt to one layer of batting – that’s it! An individual quilt block is easy to navigate underneath your standard sewing machine.

## How far apart should binding stitches be?

Keep Binding Backing Stitches about 1/4″ to 3/8″ When I was a new quilter I wasn’t careful with keeping my stitches fairly close together when binding. As a result I often had to re-stitch the binding on some of the quilts I made for our family to use.

## Do you sew binding Front Back quilt first?

Traditionally, the binding is sewn to the front of the quilt and wrapped to the back and sewn down by hand (or machine). By starting on the back and wrapping to the front, you’ll be able to do the final stitching by machine and it will look awesome (front and back.)
