    I used to dislike the binding part but after making so many mug rugs for gifts, I've gotten quite good at them (with mitered corners even!) so now it's the cutting that I don't care for (if you mess that up then you've pretty much messed up the quilt - so much stress!)

    I definitely HATE binding. I love to do the rest, but always dread the binding. I hate doing hand work and binding requires that. Several in my quilting club, love doing the binding and say they really feel like the quilt is finished when they get to the binding. I've been thinking about paying some of them to do my bindings.lol

    I like doing the bining. It's like putting the final touches on it and then it's done and I can start another quilt.

    I love to bind the quilts. I love the hand sewing it to the back. I love to see the finished quilt or wall hanging or baby quilts. When I bind a childs quilt that will be washed many many time's I will once in a while use the machine and a fancy to to hold the binding, but not always pleased with it. I can knot a lot more for a ids quilt and I think it holdes just as goos as the machine stitching.
    I do a few for other ladies here and I love the gifts and fabric certificates they give me and the $ too.

    I don't care to do the binding either but just because it kills my hands to do it. Other than that it is a good way to relax. Just keep in mind it is the very last step and once it is done you can sit back and say TA DA DONE.

    I LOVE binding them! It's nice to do something sitting down instead of standing behind the machine --- and then I know it's all done! :D
