I had an idea awhile back to make machine sewn binding easier and today I tried it on a baby quilt and it works. First I sewed a line of stay stitching all around the edge of the quilt, after doing the SID quilting. Then took the prepared binding and sewed it as usual, but to the back of the quilt. After that I trimmed the sandwich and then topstitched the binding on the front. I think it is much easier and you don't have to worry about how the bobbin thread looks on the front.
