    Binding is not my favorite thing to make. I would like a review on this before buying but may go ahead and get one. I guess someone has to be first. :D

    Binding is not my most fave either. So when you find out please post as that is the first time I have seen one and if it works well I would like to have one. :roll: :D

    The single fold would be great for some projects...but I prefer double for quilts...$99 is a little steep for me :D

    This does make double fold. I read a blog that said it worked fine for double fold but the lady was selling them. I wanted an unbiased opinion. :D

    I never use bias bindind unless the quilt is curved I cut my binding 2 1/4
    inches cross wise on the fabric and fold it in half so have double binding
    I have heard bias binding lasts longer but I have never had trouble with mine

    I make my own binding, so I'm no help. But it looks like an interesting gadget.

    I make my own binding and don't like to use bias unless absolutely necessary.

    hi Bellaboo,
    I'm with Amma, I prefer double folded tape, so I make my own. I use straight grain tape most of the time, only used bias once because I rounded corners of a quilt instead of square corners. You may be confusing "double fold" with binding folded in half and is therefore double. I think double fold tape is where tape are folded toward in and meet at center then it is folded in half. when it is applied you only have single layer of fabric on edge of quilt. I'm assuming that Dodie means that fabric is folded in half (wrong side together) then it is sewed to quilt all raw edges together and then folded edge of tape is turned over edge of quilt and sewed. In this case you have 2 layers of fabric covering edge of quilt. SOMEONE OUT THERE HELP ME ON THIS Also, I think $99 is a little steep to make bias tape which I rarely use.
