    Does anyone else hate binding a quilt? Love piecing and quilting, but seems to take me forever to get around to binding it. I just don't like binding. Is it just me? or does anyone else have this problem too?

    I like hand binding the back. I find it relaxing to do. The part I dislike is the basting, but that is because I have no where to do it.

    I dislike handwork most of the time, but I love hand quilting.

    Yes, it is my least favorite part. I however, have a friend that loves to do it and sometimes takes my big quilts anddoes it for me. I sew it on, she does the hand work.

    I do mine totally by machine & get it done a whole lot quicker this way. Works for me!...

    I don't like making the binding. All that ironing, takes forever. But once It goes on it goes pretty quick. Did a binding yesterday. Daughter would come in every 20 min or so and make fun of how fast it gets hand sewn. My problem is once it is done, I don't have anything to sew. So im busily working on my next top now.

    It's making the binding that drives me crazy!!!! It never goes as easy as it should-inspite of watching lots of videos on making bias binding. I enjoy handsewing it to the back, though.

    I like hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt but I hate to give up serious quilt time to do it. So I have several quilts languishing on the side lines waiting to be finished. I think I'll take them with me when I visit my mother over Easter. I can sew the bindings while we catch up.
