    I hope I attach the link correctly. I came across this Youtube tutorial on joining the binding ends where they end up looking like any other seam in your binding. Does away with the bulk that is sometimes there where the 2 ends meet. Looks pretty easy! Anyone use this method?

    Yes, this is the method I use with one little difference. I leave my binding strips perpendicular to each other, like she had them at first, so there is a 45% angled seam.

    This is a great video! Thanks for sharing!

    Don't use this method usually, so I have bookmarked it to try sometime. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I will try this! I've tried several other methods to end in disastrous results :-(

    Thanks! I always end up with too much bulk. I will try this on my next binding.

    When I finally decided to try this, I loved it and use it all the time now!
