I watched Leah Day do it and she makes it looks so easy, so, I have 15 potholders to bind and thought it'd be a great place to practice this technique.
I sewed the binding onto the back--check
I sewed the binding onto the front--check That was kind of fun! :-D
I worked the corners fine, but the front corners are not as nicely mitered as the back ones. but I've never had nicely mitered back corners. The corners weren't tacked down enough for me, so I just ran a straight stitch from the corner to the outside--check
So--the stitching used on the front shows on the back about 1/2" below the binding. It looks kind of weird to me. It's fine for a potholder, but I don't know if I'd want a quilt to have that line of stitching.
But--that's how it work, right?
Okay--edited to add photos....
back--why is the stitching so far off?
