    I am a convert to Sharon Schambers glue basting. Perfect corners every time. I do like this way of ending however. I had forgot about this - I learned to end this way years ao. I like it.

    Being somewhat self-taught, this is the way I put all the bindings on at first. Like Evie, I found the extra bulk at the join to be annoying, so now do a metered join and trim.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    This is the way I do mine....but I ladder-stitch the back. Binding is one of my favourite things.

    Thanks for posting this tutorial, it is good and simple and also I had forgotten how to calculate the number of strips I need to cut for the binding, this tutorial also shows how to do the calculation.

    That's how I always join my strips for binding now. No worry if I cut the angle right, since I don't cut an angle anymore. This just works so much easier. I used to join the ends that way, but now sew the ends together with a bias seam instead.

    This is the way I've always done it (for the few quilts I've made).
    Usually, I make one of those continuous strips --- Help me! what is it called? --- but would LOVE someone to tell me what the formula is when you don't need a full yard sewn and cut on the diagonal.
    I always end up with strips I don't need and wonder if I'll ever find a use for later.
    I saw it once somewhere and should have taken notes!

    (Length x width) x 2 + ??? = ???

    I like this way because the double fabric and the bias makes it easy to bind around uneven seams ( ! ) and makes it tight and wears well over time.

    Thanks!

    WOW - looks much easier than using a binding tool and wrestling with the strips so you can sew a good diagonal seam at the end. I can't wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!

    I've never seen it done like this. I've bookmarked the page and am going to try it with my next binding.

    I learned this way when I first started quilting, and found it to be the easiest way for me to bind my quilt.

    Wowwwwww, thanks so much. I always have such a time with corners that I end up rounding them off......not no more....I love it, and will try it on my new GGDs quilt in the making now.

    Love, Jo Ann

    That is a great site. I saw this on Sewing with Nancy the other day. This must be something new. I used this method on a small quilt, works really well.

    I still rather miter mine then sewing the rest of the binding on the quilt. Mitering before i start just means I have more hand sewing to do and then the chance of it coming apart are greater to me.

    I used to tuck my ends that way, then learned to do the mitered ending and use the miter cutting ruler to make it easier. I like the way it gives it a completely finished connection instead of a loose fold where they are tucked.

    I've always done my bindings this way, too. I think I lift the corner fold a little more than the tutorial, to make sure I don't catch it when I start sewing again, and that way I am pretty sure to have a square corner. I miter my ends, though, even when I make placemats, even though that is a little difficult because I don't have lots of room to work with. It makes the binding all sewn, all perfect.

    The only thing I saw different from how I learned is how much of a seam when attaching the binding to the quilt. She is using 1/3" and I learned to use 3/8".

    I have used the Missouri quilt binding tool for several quilts now. I did have to watch the video for the first few times, but it does make a very smooth finish.

    Yes, I have seen it done this way, I think it is just a matter of preference. I think if it is in a quilt show, not sure how the judges or quilt police look at the binding, depends on how big the show is. Some judges can be rather pickey about how you finish you binding. I think this way is fine.

    The difference I see is how she started the binding and ended it. Looks nice!

    I learned this method from a youtube video, and it's easier than trying to sew the mitered seam at the end. I am not at my home computer, or I'd possibly be able to find the link.
