    What kind of stitches to use when fabric is frayed? Is your sample added to make a large quilt?

      Hello Tess,

      You can use a standard straight stitch when fraying fabric, however you will want to shorten your stitch length to help ensure that the stitching stays in place and the fabric does not fray beyond the stitching.

    On the binding with fray, you said “tuck that in before binding down.” Is this a separate piece of frayed material?
