    Binding Dilemma Solved!

    I was talking to my dear quilty friend, Ronda (rwquilts) today and mentioned that every single time when I'm binding a quilt, the part where you attach the tag ends throws me into confusion. She sent me a link to this tutorial. Wow! Easy as pie. Thank you, Ronda -- my quilty friend to the rescue!

    Great tutorial! One of the best I've seen on the topic. I bookmarked this so that I can watch it, try the technique, and watch it again. Thanks for sharing!!!

    The Quilt Show has a good one this week, on how to use the binding attachment on your machine.

    I don't do competitions, but this is really a great way to beautifully complete a quilt that most likely already has a lot of work in it. Why mess up the finished product with a sloppy binding? Thanks for the link!

    I have used that method for a couple of years now and think it can't be beat. I don't do everything she recommends in the glue department, but my bindings have improved a lot since I started following her methods.

    Ronda said she uses a glue stick! A lot less mess, I think.

    Thanks for sharing this. I bookmarked it so I can refer to it the next time. First time looking at these videos I saw a few ideas to help make this process easier, especially the ending part.

    I make my mitered corners similar to what she does, but do like the idea of pressing that gives me a firm spot to stop and the her idea was to stitch to the edge. Looks like a great idea. And the ending, I can get done, but it has always been a challenge. Her solution to the end using glue, makes a lot of sense to me. Can't wait to try the entire glue process and especially the end. I like the method of stitching on front and turning to back and then stitching in the ditch on the front. I don't do hand sewing, it's all done by machine. Can't wait to try this on the table topper I have in process.
