The binding is strips of fabric that you sew together end to end, and then sew to the outer edges of the quilt in order to finish off the raw edges. This serves to protect the raw edges from damage, and creates a nice clean edge. In addition, the binding serves to visually frame the quilt.

You can learn all about quilt binding and how to make and attach it by reading my “Quilt Binding Primer” series of blog posts.
