    Ok, I know this has been talked about before - but this has to be the best thing (for me) since the rotery cutter. . .AMAZING! I used to struggle with getting the binding connected. Most times it ended in tears and my husband helping me. . I did this one first try and it is perfect.

    I saw it on the deal of the day on Missouri Star Quilt Company a while back but passed it up. I eneded up paying full price and knowing how great it works would have paid double.

    LOVE IT!

    I have the same and I love it as well. Took me a few tries with the tutorial on their website but I swear by this one!

    Oh gosh, I saw that technique years ago on the web but you didn't need a tool, you just did everything without the tool and the same instruction....I'll go find it...

    Belive me - I have tried and tried that basic idea. I watched the web tutorials over and over, step by step - for some reason I could just not get it. I know - I should have been able to work it out - I mean, my husband would come in and blink it was good. I just had some kind of mental block. Crazy - but this little piece of plastic makes it all so simple :)

    I do my binding like this without a tool, it was kinda odd to learn when I was basic quilting classes but once you get it it will be second nature to you!

    I've used the binding tool for over a year now. I saw the video first and then ordered the tool. I love it. I always had the hardest time connecting the binding at the end and this wonderful fantastic cool tool was the answer for me. :thumbup:

    So, that's the name of it? It's just called the "Binding Tool?"

    I just "googled" it and watched the video. How creative! I've got to have one!
