Binding with Patrick Lose

| The Quilters’ Community | Episode 27

Patrick Lose has his favorite way of binding a quilt. Learn how he does it!


  1. Love this episode on mitered corners. This final step (of many, of course) has always been the most difficult for me. I know there are many ways to do this step but this video keeps it simple and explains why you should or should not do a particular thing. Thanks Patrick!

  2. I haven’t been quilting a real long time , (less than 2 years) but I hate using pins. I do my binding the same way .. it’s small bits at a time , I never pin it . And I’m ok with that :-) Love the tip and am going to try it with my next mug rug (I always try something new on a small scale first lol) Thank you!! :)

  5. I agree with Deborah, Patricks method makes perfect sense. I also like his idea for using the seam guide and setting it slightly more than 1/4 “. Thank you Patrick

  12. This is a great video, very clear to someone who has not done this before. I learned this method on another site a couple years ago and I love how I get such nice mitered corners now. My 4-H leader from way back would be very proud. ;-)

    • It depends on the piece I’m binding, Roxana, but I usually cut binding 2-1/4″.
