    Some of you members have said you sew the binding to the back first then bring it around to the front and use a decorative stitch to sew it down. Could someone post a pic to show just how you do it. I'm a visual learner and even tho it sounds simple, i would like to see it first.

    Thanks so much. I love you guys here.

    I tried it, but didn't like my results. I did recently come across this tutorial that sews the binding back to front and then stitches it down by machine. It creates a faux piping look and you stitch in the ditch of the "piping" and the "binding" using a regular "stitch in the ditch" stitch.

    I use the Sharon Schamber method of attaching my bindings first before finishing with a decorative stitch. I find her method of glueing down the binding easier to do than the pinning method.

    Here is the link for her method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PE0Yq9iGlc

    This is one of my quilts with decorative stitch from a Janome TB-30.

    I do mine this way because I cannot sew by hand anymore.

    I like the machine binding tutorial that Charismah put in the tutorial section of the QB. The title of it is "Quick Machine Binding With Flange" If you match the thread colour to the faux piping colour, it is the best binding I've seen using the machine. I've had many compliments on the pieces that I've used it on. :thumbup:

    I've sewn my binding to the back first and then use a tiny blanket stitch on the front...sorry, I don't have any close up pics of the ones I've done.

    I really like Charismah's tut though, with the little faux piping. I've never seen that before and I think I'd like to try that next time.

    Thank you all. The tuts have really helped.

    I use this technique when making kid's quilts. I figure the machine stitch will be stronger than hand stitching for something the kid will drag around.
