Hand Sewing Binding in Batik Fabric

I am just finishing my first batik quilt. I sat down to hand sew the binding to the back but oh my goodness, this will take me years at this rate! I can barely even get my needle through the fabric! I sewed a couple of inches fighting the fabric all the way and gave up. Anyone have any suggestions as to needle size or thread, etc that would make this job any easier? It is starched fabric too by the way.
