I just dont get it. I have taken classes, watched video's and bought a thousand gadgets. I do have to admit my mitered corners are much better but no matter how I try I cannot get both the front and the back stitching straight when applying a binding with a machine.
The only thing I do worse than apply a binding by machine is doing any type of hand stitching so that option is out. The back of the binding would come undone with the first washing.
I have stitched on the front and folded to the back and SID. I have stitched on the back and folded to the front and topstitched. I have stitched on the back and decoratively stitched the front. No matter what the stitching on the back looks like a snake. I tried a Martelli thing but it was not any better than using a 1/4 inch accufeed foot on my machine.
I have glued. I have clipped. I have pinned. I have stiched super slow to be accurate. It never ends up exactly straight.
I have cut the binding strip 2 1/2. 2 1/4 and even 2 3/4.
I feel like Im the only idiot who cannot figure this out. Thank God I have only given quilts to people who have no clue about quilting. I would be embarrassed if anybody who knows how to quilt would look at these bindings.
