I am just going to say this up front. I don't like hand sewing and avoid it at all costs. I not only don't like doing it, I am not a real fan of seeing a lot of it.
I do my bindings by machine and love the look. Both of my grandmothers did theirs the same way. Stitch it to the back and roll to the front and top stitch. That is the look I like best. I do sometimes go the other way and stitch in the ditch from the top. It all looks good to me.
At a quilt show last Thursday I was looking at something with my MIL and the vendor commented on how I could use it when I did handwork. I chuckled and said, "I don't do handwork if I can avoid it."
She said, "Except for your bindings, of course."
I said, "No. I do those by machine. I like how they look that way."
My MIL said, "I love to do handwork," but the woman would not talk to us anymore.
Am I the only weirdo out here that doesn't like handwork? People talk about how relaxing it is but it gives me a pain in my shoulders and a headache. I see no point in being physically miserable if I can achieve the results I want with a machine.
I know there are no QP but I think there are some quilt snobs!
If you are a fellow weirdo, you aren't alone!
BTW, I do crochet and that doesn't bother me.
