Satin Blanket Binding for Baby Quilts

sdarrah1973 | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hi all! I’m new to Gatherings, but not new to Threads. But, I’m at a loss to find really nice satin blanket binding for a baby quilt. I know I can make it myself and just might do that. My daughter received a crib quilt from a friend and the blanket binding was not stitched on correctly and frayed terribly so even before the baby is here, it needs to be replaced. I wanted to know if any of you might be aware of a manufacturer that still makes really nice, opaque satin blanket binding. I’d sure appreciate any suggestions any of you might have out there.

Thanks!

    Wright's still makes it.  Should be available wherever sewing notions are sold. Or you can buy it online.

    I use Wrights also if I use binding. I usually don't use binding on the baby blankets. I am a bit lazy so I just round the edges and serge with the "Extra" Woolly nylon. I have found the blankets to last much longer when the edges are serged rather than have satin binding. I have many grandkids and my kids keep asking me to make more. Another baby is coming this month and another in June. Grands #24 and #25. :) Three of them are great grands. Yep, I have made many blankets.:) I really love to make them. I would like to join Project Linus this year.

      Our daughter loved the feel of the satin binding on her special blanket.  From the time she was quite young she had a special corner of the binding that was the perfect spot for her thumb.  I replaced the satin binding several times before she was ready to sleep without her blanket.  I never sewed the mitered corners shut so her thumb could find the new home.  To this day she is very aware of texture in her clothing selection.  And, I still have the well-loved yellow blanket.  Can't bring myself to throw it.

        Virginia, that is a very sweet story. :)
