I can't seem to get past the continuous bias binding method. It works so well, the final product is easy to work with and it's easy to make. I cut different widths, depending on the final look I want from my binding and use fabric that either matches or contrasts, again depending on the desired effect. I have a stiff paper bag that I drop my binding into that I put on the floor under my sewing machine and feed the binding up from there. My big challenge is learning how to sew it on, then sew it down all by machine.
