I've just finished attaching the binding on my first quilt. Tomorrow I'll hand-sew the binding to the backing. I'm sort of dreading this because my hand sewing skills are pretty much non-existent. But I'm willing to learn :D I've thoroughly enjoyed each step in the process and have been so meticulous that I just don't want to mess up now. So...is there a particular stitch that is generally used? Thousands of years ago I used to hem my pants by hand and used what (to me) was a blind stitch. I would double the thread to make it sturdier. My plan was to do this type of stitch. What do you experts do?
