BINDING
There are a number of different methods to bind a quilt. Some methods are continuous strip binding, no binding (pillowcase method) and self binding.

For this quilt, I used continuous strip binding by making double fold binding, machine sewing it to the front of the quilt and hand-stitching it to the back. If you hate hand sewing, you could attach the binding to the back of the quilt with a sewing machine and then machine sew it to the front.

HANGING SLEEVE
Do you think the quilt will be hung on a wall? If so, you will want to add a hanging sleeve on the back of the quilt.

LABEL

The last step when making any quilt is to make a quilt label. Labeling a quilt is an important step to preserve the pertinent information about the quilt for future generations. The four "W"s of the quilt should be included in the label. Who? When? Where? Why?

For my quilt label, I used my sewing machine built-in alphabetic and numeric feature.
