  1. Sheila Stern says:

    I watch this tutorial every time I need to bind an art quilt with a facing. It is far and away the best method of accomplishing this task that I have found and I like watching Rachel sew. It is like having her in my sewing room sewing right beside me.

    1. Rachel says:

      Aww, thanks, Sheila! I’m glad you find it helpful and happy quilting.

  2. Ginny brim says:


    You just made my job 100% easier. I always felt I was losing my effect of the wall hanging with binding the beautiful artwork. Now this is an awesome technique.


    1. Rachel says:

      So glad you found it helpful!

    Thank You Carol

      Glad to help, thanks!

  6. Holly Watson says:

    Thanks for sharing your method of doing the facing. It is different than what I do, and will try it next time. I sew the 1/8 inch on the facing on all sides. Will try it soon and share picture.

    1. Rachel says:

      Certainly, I would like to see a picture of your method.

    Rachel, This video tutorial is so helpful! If I want to attach a hanging sleeve, do I sew the sleeve on top of the facing? Have you ever made a video on how to attach a hanging sleeve? thank you!

    1. Rachel says:

      I’m so glad you found it helpful! Yes, you do sew the hanging sleeve by hand onto the facing. I do have a video on how to make a hanging sleeve. You have a membership to Artful Quilting: Check out the end of Square Within a Square Quilt – Video Three. Can’t wait to see your quilt!

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. I just finished using this technique on my latest quilt today.
    My quilt looks tremendous. I have to add the sleeve and label. This method is the best.
