    This is the way I have always bound my quilts. It is the most durable and neatest binding I have seen.

    At first I thought it was just the same way I do it but then I noticed the very last part. . . . sticking the end tail into the diagonal slit that you made before you started sewing it on. I have always made a mitered seam at the end so this part is different and sure sounds easier. I will have to try it. Thanks for sharing.

    wendylee is right about sticking the tail in the end. i've never prepared a miter at the beginning either. i may try this as trying to match the 2 tails at the end is always annoying to me

    It is very interesting, the way the tail is tucked into the fabric for the finishing touch. I may need to try this.

    You are so right - That last mitered seam always frustrates me, but this looks pleasantly "do-able" Thanks for sharing.!

    This is the way I have always done mine...most the time they work out great....sometimes tho, I may pull it a little tight at the corners and it becomes a little "rounded" when the binding is flipped over to the back side. Be very careful not to make it too taught on the corners...it's easier to tuck a little bit extra in than it is to add to the corner to make it square once it's stitched on the front. Also an FYI...if you are entering into a quilt show...they want really squared corners and they also want the miters stitched down on both side of the corners. I have also always done this, but I did notice that this was on the "critique" list from the judge...who knew!

    Very interesting. I will have to try this. I always hated the last seam for the binding. Its either not enough or to much.
