I have 7 quilts that are for Christmas and all they need are to be bound. I'm too slow to hand sew the binding on the back. I know many people machine sew the binding (first) to the back and then bring it around to the front of the quilt and machine bind it. I tried that with a table runner and it looks horrible. I used the right color of thread but you can see that it's not a straight line down the binding, kindy wavy, missed the binding completely in some areas. I have to rip it apart and start over. I want to do the runner first before I tackle my quilts. Any suggestions?
