    Looks like this method would take longer than a regular binding.
    This method looks like it would leave threads all ove the place, definitely not for a crib quilt.

    I do it much easier! I just add an inch to the border and backing, cut out the batting, topstitch all around the quilt and then snip very fine, no more then 1/4" wide. The cotton fabric rags tightly and looks pretty darn good. It's great for utility quilts. But by the time I snip all four sides I could have sewn on regular binding.
    Got fabric?

    Oh, yes!!
    Now that makes much more sense to me (if the goal is a raggedy binding).


    eta:
    You trim out the batting BEFORE topstitching?

    I'm pretty sure I'd cut either too much and not have enough in the quilt section,
    OR not enough and still have to deal with it while snipping.

    How do you manage such an accurate cut - rotary or scissor?
    Or is this where you pull back the top and backing and cut - cause that never, ever ends well for me.

    I just thought after topstiching it would be easier to just cut out batting with a scissor.

    Cute idea, but I don't think this method is necessarily easier.

    I agree, it looks like just as much or more work than a regular binding, although it is cute. I could see it on a kid's quilt.
