How to Sew a Self-Binding Blanket with Cuddle® and Cotton

We’re wrapping up Season 9 of Sew Together Tuesday with a must-watch episode for quilters!

Our National Educator Teresa Coates will be going LIVE from the Bits ‘N Pieces Quilt Shop floor, where she’ll combine two things near and dear to quilters — Cuddle® and cotton — for this tutorial on how to self-bind a cotton quilt with Cuddle®.

The best part? There’s no hand sewing required, will work on any quilt size and makes your quilt super soft and immediately enjoyable (no break-in period)!

And while our standard 58”/60”-wide fabrics will work just fine for most quilts, we also offer extra-wide fabrics in Cuddle® 3 that are 88”/90” wide and Luxe Cuddle® Mirage that are 78”/80” wide for bigger projects.

Happy quilting!
