Okay, I cut my binding strips 2 1/2", sew them all together, and sew them onto the quilt. The problem is that when I pull the binding to the back of the quilt to hand stitch it, I HAVEN'T SEWN THE BINDING STRIPS COMPLETELY TO THE QUILT!! So on the front, I can see the batting and the edge of the quilt top... lovely. And so I go back and restitch it, which results in the binding being uneven.
I don't know how that happened, since I cut the batting/back so it was 1/4" from the quilt top. I then attached the binding at 1/2" - 3/8" (it varied :oops: ), but still, on one side I found 6 areas where I missed the quilt top.
I've seen a lot of threads talking about how to hand stitch the back, and that's the easy part for me. What I can't figure out is what I do wrong. This happens every time I do binding, and I don't know what's going on! :cry:
Any ideas on what the heck is going on??? I really want to keep doing the french binding method, rather than gluing it or faux binding methods.
