I have always sewed binding on by hand, even my dad's king size t-shirt quilt. However, I have been wanting to try it the "Eleanor Burns" way using 3" binding strips. So I decided I would on the quilt I made for my niece's 2nd birthday. I sewed it on the front and then flipped it to the back and pinned the heck out of it. Started to sew on the back and kept checking it. Side one went well, the other three not so much! I had to rip out stitch after stitch. I finally completed it two hours in, however I was not happy with the results. Does anyone have any suggestions on improving this technique. I should have sewn it by hand. I was trying to save time but spent just as much time fixing it as if I hand sewn the binding. I think I will hand sew binding on from now on.
