    I just finished a table runner using Sharon Schamber's method for binding using Elmer school glue. It takes a little more time but the results are fantastic. I've never had such square milterd corners and a flat binding since doing bindings. I didn't even use my walking foot. I think binding is one of the least favorite things to do, luckily I've never minded doing bindings. The binding on my table runner was different than what I've done in the past. It's a reversible runner so I wanted the binding to be the same as the theme on each side, one side Christmas, the other Fall. I recommend this method to anyone. I learned to new methods with this runner, binding and how to attach a doublesided binding.

    I love her binding method too!!!:D:D:D I use her glue basting method for many aspects of quilting.
    I am very interested in hearing more about the double sided binding, please.
    Have you posted a picture of your table runner?

    The Fall side doesn't seem to photo as well as the Christmas side
    What I did was cut 1 1/2 strips for each side, and make my binding, sew the 2 bindings right sides together. Open and press the seam open really good. Take the raw edge of each binding and bring it to the middle. Attach as normal. The seam will be the fold of the binding. I thought I would have problems joining the ends but I followed Sharon's method to the letter and it worked. The next time I do it however, the binding I sew down I will cut at 1 1/2 but the side I turn down and hand sew I'll cut 1 to 1 1/4. The binding I turned is a little wider than the other side. Hope this makes sense.

    I recommended her video to someone recently and they said she has taken it off her website. It was such a good one.
    I was just on it last night. It's still there

    I don't know how to make these links so you will have to copy them into your url. The second one is easier to access I think because all 3 videos are right there. The first one is the original site.
