Thumbs up Easy way to make binding

Just tried this method and it works like a charm.
The trick to this method is to make sure you put your strips
the right way up. I just lay all my strips on my cutting board
then twist and lay the ends together like in the video, then
trim and cut with the ruler. BTW, I don't have the Creative
Grids ruler. I used my Easy Angle ruler and it works just
the same.

Thanks for posting. I need to try this -- think it might help me conquer my unique ability to sew right side to wrong side when I get on a roll. So annoying!

I can see that the ruler does give the 1/4 inch overlay so you don’t have to try to match the dog ears. It is still easier for me to just lay my binding pieces in an L shape and sew the 45 degree and trim off the extra.

Same here, Tartan! I have the CG Folded Corner Clipper - I still get better seam 'joins' using the old school method!

I have the folded corner ruler and it's a life saver when using for corners. When I bought mine it was by Pioneer Sky Quilting. CG bought the rights to it. It's a wonderful ruler to have.

EasyPeezy, thanks for telling us about this method, and that you use the Easy Angle ruler -- which I have. So, you saved me money and taught me something new. I think I prefer the Easy Angle ruler because it's much larger than the Creative Grids ruler.
