I have always, when done w/a quilt, cut off to the edge of the quilt, tacked on the binding w/pins and sewed by machine all the way around...only then whip it to the backside of the quilt by hand sewing it down.
I have a friend that suggested machine sewing it down instead of by hand. I noticed (and didn't think about it till later) she had about 1/4 of the batting and backing past the edge of the top layer of the quilt. Is this what you do?Or do you cut your quilt before binding flush too??And, then I ask myself..why do I cut it to the edge?I have no idea! I guess I thought you were supp. to!:)Tag you are it!! Skeat
