    I feel the same way. I find using that tool makes something pretty easy into a confusing task. There is a tutorial I found by Konda Luckau that I find most helpful: www.moosequilts.com/BindingTutorialWeb.pdf. See if it helps you!

    Oh, this one is really good! She makes it so easy. I didn't know McCalls had video tutes; thank you for the link.

    I had to laugh at this thread! I go the binding tool, watched both the original and the updated MQC tutorial several times, even took notes! Saw a vendor at a show and studied what she said to do, even took notes on that! And once I actually did it right--think that I just got lucky! Now I use the Fons & Porters method--almost. The key thing is to leave a 1/4" gap between the two ends and then pin/mark the angles. NOW, the binding tool does make a real handy ruler for making a braid quilt--there's a tut on MQC for that too!

    I bought both the small and the standard size binding tools (the small one by mistake - cheaper to keep than post it back to the US from Australia). Even at this early stage in my learning I think they'll end up in a cupboard unused. I have come across one or two videos which just make a lot of sense without the complications.

    Actually I'm already amassing a small collection of bits and pieces that I don't think I'll use. Guess it's part of the learning process.
