    I have made a few quilts but I have never been able to work out how to finish off the binding neatly. It always looks messy and I have never been happy how it looks. Can anyone give me some suggestions?

    Great video. Thanks. Do you have a point for your glue? Where do you get them?

    Klue (or anyone) do you know if the Sharon Schamber Video on Curved binding will work on a 45 degree inside corner binding too?

    yes you should be able to do it the same way - and use some glue to hold things down.

    Great thanks. i have just made that table runner for the wedding gift and I have four inside corners to bind which I have never done. I will give it a shot. Really great videos. Thanks for turning me onto them.

    i just designed a quilt for our church fair that has a cross cut out in the center that's about 4 inches in each direction.

    it should be interesting when it comes time to bind it.
