    This is a great way to finish charity quilts. It goes so quickly...and allows more time to make even more charity quilts. LOL

    What a great way to use decorative stitches to finish stitching the binding. Thank you for sharing.

    Backing to front binding

    I checked out the site also and found it be very interesting. One thing came to mind as I reviewed it. This is the same way one could fold in the corners of a napkin or tablecloth but w/o the sandwich layers.

    Thank you. I've tried this by trial and error and frustration. Nice to have some guidelines.

    This is how I finish most of my quilts. With a full-time and a part-time job I'm all about fast and this is it. I trim my backing to just 1" and fold in half for a much smaller binding though. Don't know why - that's just how I've done it. Can someone tell me why she quilted twice?
    So many quilts, so little time.
