    and I'm at a standstill. I began at the middle, worked around each corner and am close to meeting where I started....now what??? How do I join these two ends? Someone please point me to a tutorial or talk me through this! I'm a mess trying to figure it out! I've done 10 quilts and never a binding! Now I'm ready to face the demons and it's shooting me down! I'm tired and will pick this up again tomorrow! UGH!

    I still refer to the youtube one everytime I do a binding.
