Welcome to the Quilting Board!
the knife edge method looks pretty interesting.

-I have my backing about 3 inches bigger on each side of my quilt then once I am all done quilting it, I trim up my batting and I place/fold the edge of my backing next to the edge of my top then fold over and sew very close to the edge on the top so you have about a 1/2 inch looking binding...I make lots of baby quilts for friends n family so this is a fast way for me bind my quilts...
-I've also done this with some bigger quilts and it still looks nice and holds up very well...I have hand stitched binding before and agree it looks better but I prefer to machine stitch if I can...on a show quilt I would definitely hand stitch but for all my other quilts I machine stitch it
-I think your tip is great!! Nicely done.

Thanks for the info on the knife edge binding. I don't know whether I'll use it because I like tomiter my corners, but it's always nice to have different things in my "bag of tricks."

I have a question - On the video by Sharon S-- for doing the Elmer's around the edge with the binding - there's a tip of some kind on the bottle of glue. If she said what the tip WAS I missed it, and the video was far too blurry for me to see what the heck it was! Can anybody tell me what the tip thing was? I can't wait to try this the next time I bind a quilt.
I have to say - in the few weeks I've been a member of this board, I've seen MORE nifty tricks mentioned, and nifty tools, and really helpful tutorials than I've seen in the last 10 years. This is the BEST ever for my quilting loves and skills!
I took 2 classes from the author of this book. Lots of wonderful finishes. Its one of my go to books. Amazon doesnt seem to have the revised edition. Get it directly from designer.
