    Send it to me, I'll put the binding on. I love doing bindings because then I know it's done.

    cut strips about 2.5 wide, fold in half and iron as you go...
    sew to the right side of the quilt, bring to back and pin and hand stitch on the back...
    if you absotively hate hand sewing, just pin and machine stitch...

    does not have to be on the bias and the double layer makes it last a little longer :)
    i do it this way but i stitch it to the back. bring the fold to the fron and machine stitch with a decorative stitch. A blanket stitch looks nice.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm thinking of taking you up on the binding offers.

    :-)

    I really love those colors in the quilts you posted. What do you think of the spring one in the book with the floral prints?

    OUTSTANDING! Awesome.

    That's a great book. They go together fast and are just stunning. I'm laying out and selecting colors for my "blue" one. I want to use colors like you've used in yours.

    Absolutely Beautiful! I like doing the binding while I watch TV in the evenings.

    Wow, what a gorgeous quilt! Why in the world would you NOT put the binding on after all that work? Do you need help?
