    That is a great way to get assistance! This is a good place for hints and tips. There has been a lot of discussion about binding here.

    Hi and welcome from Texas. Glad you joined us. Is there anyone in your area that would be willing to do that last step for you? Do you have a local quilt guild?

    Better Homes and Gardens "Complete Guide to Quilting" on Pages 12-5, 12-6 and 12-7 show a very nice method for binding. The "joining binding ends with no overlap" is a bit tricky but once you get it down it works beautifully. I know longer have trouble with my bindings.
