    The Binding thingy is on the top 10 gadgets list....Its easy, you are gauranteed a neat small already sewn corner. No unraveling because you trim close, I have been using this method for many years and it Never frayed, on baby quilts that are washed a lot- and on King quilts that are not washed so often. It actually takes less time to do than the traditional way....just in case ya wanted to know.. :-)

    I use Sharon Schamber's method from the video but I don't use the glue. I find that starching the binding gives me enough firmness to just sew it on. I do follow her advice on the corners and the last two quilts I did had great miters on the binding (if I dare say so myself).

    Closing the binding still takes me a little bit until my brain wraps around the right direction, but I use the angled cut and it works like a charm.

    quilt that,

    does the binding tool help with doing internal binding?

    i've designed a quilt that has a cross cut out right in the center of the quilt and i've been dwelling on how to bind it off.

    imagine a quilt and then take a rotary cutter and cut a 4 inch cross out of it in the center.

    so i have to binding the edges all around the quilt - just like any other quilt but i also have to bind off the center where i cut a cross out.

    SO the quilt is like a frame with a void?
