I have noticed a couple of discussions in the last couple of days about binding quilts. Everyone seems to be using 90º cuts for the binding, rather than bias tape.
When I first started quilting, the lady who was teaching the class said that "some rich people" use bias tape for binding their quilts, but we would learn the more economical way!
Now I know better - making bias tape is really, really easy and just as efficient as the 90deg cuts. I have made a little flash tutorial on my website about how I do it - check it out at http://www.3dquilt.me.uk/homepagefiles/tutorials.htm
(also, let me know if there is anything unclear in it!)
