Thread: Help Advice for finishing pieces

    Hi, I am a new quilter and am enjoying the hobby very much. While I have always been a basic sewer, I am unhappy with my finish work on quilts. I have hemmed many items and have been satisfied, but it doesn't appear to be good enough for quilted pieces. Does anyone have any advice how to do 'hand stitching' for the binding pieces so that the stitching doesn't show? I have seen beautiful pieces done by other people, but I must be missing a 'trick' to do it myself. I hate when a beautifully quilted piece is damaged by the handwork to complete it. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
