    Thought I'd share how I "corral" my binding while attaching it to the quilt top by machine.

    I wrap it around my fingers and then put it on the second spool pin on my machine...

    When working on a big quilt like this, I have a card table that I place to the left of my body to help hold the body of the quilt so I'm not fighting to keep it on the sewing table.
