    Great Job on the Tute , there were a couple spots where I was lost with just the words , but as I told you before I am a visual person and the pics really cleared it up :lol: :shock: :lol:

    Can't wait to try this have three quilts pinned and will try this with the next one I quilt :wink:
    You're gonna love this method! It's so easy and a wonderful way to bring a nice backing forward as the binding!
    Kind Regards,

    I have used this method a couple of times lately, and I like it. I'm going to have to try your method for corners, though, since I kind of miter mine and they never turn out as neat as I would like.

    This is the only way I bind mine! I have, on occasion, pieced the back....using a less-than-perfect-for-binding fabric for most of the back and then using the small amount of perfect fabric sort of as a border on the back, so it's what shows when I self-bind to finish! However...I am a veteran topmaker and not much of a finisher so this may be a trick that works for me and not everybody....I do it to finish quickly.

    I like the mitered corners better. It's a little more work to attach the binding but in the end I think it looks better in front, you don't have the edge of the binding showing on the top of the quilt.

    That's an excellent idea! I'll have to try that one!

    You can actually do a mitered corner with the self binding, I've seen that as well! Whatever works for you is great!
