    Joining/Binding link..

    This is SO helpful..I bought the binding tool right before I found this link , that had been presented by another QB member..There is no need for tools...

    ​I have been doing my binding this way for years. They always work out perfectly but I made myself a little sample with the binding done up to just before trimming the triangles off. My old brain forgets every time which end goes right side out and which goes right side in, so the sample really helps.

    I learned this method from my Better Homes & Gardens Complete Guide to Quilting. I say I learned it, but I have to get out the book and read it every stinking time! Love this book though.

    I like this method, too. All I have to do is remember the width of my binding, and it works every time. Thanks for sharing it!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    This part of the binding had been a bugaboo for me too! Glad I found this, from another QB member, and of course love to give back to this board when it comes up..It has been a great education here.!!berni
