    There are lots of ways to do the binding, depends on what technique you like best. There was a thread on this recently that you will find with the search.

    I LOVE continuous bias binding and use it almost exclusively. The other binding I use for kid quilts is self-binding. Continuous bias binding will give an effective twisting look if you use stipey fabric and is dead simple to do. No fussing with cutting strips and sewing - two seams and cut the binding. I don't even press mine, just match the edges as I sew it on.

    Use "continuous bias binding" as a search term and you will find instructions. I have a printed copy and don't venture one step without them even though I've done several bindings.

    Once you have your binding made, here's a great video on how to attach it to the quilt so there are no visible joins. Easy!

    Unless it's bias for design reasons, straight grain bias is easier to attach. Bias can sometimes stretch and twist if you're not careful.
