    I alway miter the ends too....

    I think you will find that this method is quite a common one. Keep learning and you will come across many more. They all suit a purpose.

    Yes, this is the way I bind quilts. Give it a try, you will find it looks great, wears well and is easy to do.

    Very good tut. I use most of it, but didn't think of cutting the beginning at 45 degrees so it is ready to join. Very good.

    this is how i was taught to do bindings- which i quit doing once i learned to attach(do the mitered join) the ends instead- i prefer the stitched ends better now- but the first 100+ quilts i made this i did use the tuck the fabric method= so, it's definitly not new- just different.

    I like that end "join." I agree with the others that it looks easier than the mitered join I've been doing. I'll have to try it on my next quilt. Thanks for sharing!
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    This method sounds great. As many of the prior posters, I've always made a mitered join, but every single time I do it I have to spend too much time figuring it out again. It always comes out right eventually, but this method looks like it will be much easier. Have definitly bookmared the site. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

    I used to do it this way but found it adds a more bulk at the joint, which I wasn't happy about so I'm back to mitering the end of the binding, troublesome as it can sometimes be.
