You might remember a little while ago I started making my first quilt. I'm yet to actually finish it (I know, shameful) but i really enjoyed the process - so I decided to make a couple of small baby quilts to sell at the design market:
It was all going really well, until it came time to attach the bias binding. There was no way I was going to hand stitch these little ones, so I went for the machine stitch approach. I decided to stitch in the crease of the bias on the back side, and then edge stitch from the front, so I could make sure the line was nice and neat.
But this is what happened:
What did I do wrong? It looks like the front side of the bias binding is misaligned with the back, causing that twisting effect. Should I have used a walking foot for this? Or did I just tack my bias badly and therefore if one end starts misaligned the whole edge gets out of whack?
I got to this point about a month ago and i totally stumped me. The quilts have been patiently waiting in the corner ever since ;)
