    There was a tutorial on making binding with 1/2 yd. and it made 200 ft. or yds. I don't remember which. I looked up Missiourui tuts but didn't find it there. Does anyone remember where it was?
    I'm ready to do the binding on my quilt and I guess I didn't keep it, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you need bias binding for curves??? Straight of grain binding is alot easier for ordinary quilts.

    I like bia if the print on my binding is different. I use straight of grain when it doesn't matter but if I want (for example) stripes to be diagonal then bias is the way to go.

    Bias binding is easier for curves because it will "bend".

    Yes, you need bias for curves....it has to be flexible to go around them. Straight grain binding isn't flexible. I also like to cut plaids and stripes on the bias for bindings because of the look I get.

    Well when I looked at the video I realized you have to have 90 degree ruler to do this method. What a bummer I don't have one I don't think I have ever seen one either. Have any of you or do you know where to buy one for future use?
    Thanks again for your assistance.

    It is 200 inches of binding from the 1/2 yard,not 200 yards. It is a good tutorial though.
