    If you start out being afraid of if you will never get past the learning curve. Binding is not that hard to do. Get some good advise here on the board and watch some tutes on binding. You will be fine.

    Also you don't have to bind a quilt. they can be pillowcased or a knife edge could be used or you can turn the backing to the front and stitch it down. There are many ways to finish a quilt. There are lots of tutorials to watch and books to learn from. Classes are also very useful.

    try a small project just to learn. You will be surprised!
    peace :D

    hooray for peckish! I have never pressed my bindings. Scared to admit with all the master quilters here. For me, it's easier to hand-stitch a soft rolled edge than a sharply creased one. Lot less work, too. Bad, now my secret is out.

    I learned a lot from the youtube videos when I was first starting out. They are very helpful.

    Two secrets learning here....do not iron and use elmers glue....makes it a snap. And once you mast how to miter/turn the corners....it becomes a piece of cake. Not hard and like said before the best part because its the end.
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I don't iron my binding either, and I've never had an issue (granted...I've only made like 4 projects...but still!). Why create an extra step for yourself!
