    I bind all of them. I enjoy doing table runners as it is not all that much work to bind them as compared to a queen size quilt. It looks good too.

    I bind some but my favorite method is to fold the back to the front and bind. It looks nice from the front and then only has the one nice row of stitching on the back. I can't hand stitch binding because of arthritis in my hands and wrists so that is not an option.

    I bind them because they never seem to lay as flat as I want them to when I turn them.

    I always bind them I like to sit and sew by hand in the evening and I love to finish hand stitching the binding.I sew it on to the front by machine and hand stitch it to the back. I think binding helps them to lay flat also.

    I always bind them also. I just like the look when it is done this way.
