    This looks like an interesting method to try - always like to try new things, thanks!

    I love doing binding.

    This way is certainly no quick and easy method, although I do think it would look good on a flannel rag quilt.

    I topstitch before cutting out the batting with scissors. I use a tiny zig zig topstitch and with Heritage rag scissors, they only cut so far in, so I rarely cut through the seam. If I do I put a marker at the cut and restitch it when I'm done snipping.
    Got fabric?

    Perfect, that makes much more sense to me.
    I'm going to try your method with the next kid's (not baby) rag quilt.
    I think it would work just as well on a chenille-d quilt.
    Thanks.

    I love binding my quilts the traditional way. I find it very relaxing. This method looks neat but looks like more work to me. Just MHO.
