    MSQC Ultimate Binding

    For anyone struggling with finishing the binding on a quilt, Jenny posted a nice tutorial on youtube. I will try and do a link.

    i saw it and loved it...the "ending together" part was very good. She always has good stuff, doesn't she?

    Yes, she is the latest "down to earth" quilt resource....hope she doesn't change, her personal charm is genuine and her willingness to share is refreshing.

    This was really good and no special rulers needed...I am going to join my ends on my next quilt like this.

    Oh I wish Jenny Doan was my next door neighbor! I love her tutorials, her gentle wit and I've learned so much from her. Thank you for this link as I'm about to bind my latest quilt and this is going to make it a lot easier than my clumsy way.

    I just watched this. She does the same method that Holice described in his written tutorial here on the board. I always use his method and it works great for me. Seeing it in a video really helped cement it in my head. Thanks for posting.

    I saw her video, too, and loved it. Looked much easier than ending the binding with that binding tool she also has on video.

    Great video! That is the way that I've done my binding for the past few years - love it! Comes out perfectly every time and you really can't tell where you started or ended!!

    I love how she did it. I do that way except the last part. Thanks for sharing.

    I do my binding this same way, and although I can't judge the ending inches like she can, I just lay the end of the left over binding open and that's my measurement no matter the width of the binding. She is so great. I love her shows.

    Hey thanks for sharing this video with us. I've never ironed my strips before I sew them together but isn't this a good idea. Especially with fabric that is the same on both sides. Her method of joining the ends is a little different then the way I was taught. Of course her method is easier!! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
