    Thank you for sharing. I juststarted binding a baby quilt. The pocket idea sounds great and easy. I am going to use it.

    I just did this....but after I put on the binding I ironed the binding then I did stitch in the ditch on the top side. It came out GREAT!!! Very easy...ok...I just I don't mind binding now.

    Think I'm gonna try it on my next one! Looks easy enough to me! Lot less time consuming than hand stitching the binding! Thanks for sharing

    Thanks. I just put it in my "favorites" for future reference. I'll be needing it by the first of July and will give it a try. Has got to be better than what I'm doing now.

    When you do the "pocket" thing with the binding, is there a raw edge along the original cut edge of the starting of the binding?

    No, she turned the raw edge under 1/2" before she started sewing.

    I used to do my bindings this way, but then I found this method -- http://youtu.be/1daucbSCVuw -- which is ever so much cleaner and nicer. Makes it so you can't tell where you began and where you ended! :thumbup:

    It's a bit fiddly the first time you do it, but then it just becomes second nature. Give it a try! :-)

    That's how I do it, and it gives a wonderful, professional appearance. Good tute - thanks!

    EXCELLENT...I never saw the method of "making a pocket" in the binding by cutting the angle first.
