Then it was a matter of figuring out how to adjust the needle on my machine for the right seam width. I've had to take my seam ripper to my binding twice now, but that's how I learn what not to do! I love my Babylock Katherine in that I no longer have to use my 1/4" foot--it's much more accurate and easier to just move that needle left or right and then line up the outer edge of the foot with the outside edge of the fabric. My machine's automatic setting of a 1/2" seam seems to be the perfect needle position because it sews an 1/8" seam away from the left edge of the binding. I just noticed
in my photos that I used my regular foot instead of my walking foot, but the fabric is moving and so I'm going to go with it!
