Understitching a Quilt Facing

A few weeks ago I posted a video about neatly turning the corners of a facing on a quilt. In the video I referenced a technique called understitching. Understitching is frequently used in garment construction, and after posting the video it occurred to me that not everyone has made garments, so maybe I should explain further. So, if you’ve never done any understitching, or you just want to brush up on it, here’s a video where I demonstrate this technique.

  1. I have done this on clothes but never thought of doing this on a quilt but will the next time. Thank you for sharing..

  2. I have an art quilt that I want to apply a facing so this is a great video for me! ( I have done understitching in garments)
