Default Wow! Fastest binding ever.

I read through it, but don't see how it's any different than using a regular machine to attach the binding with a 1/4" seam (especially using a 1/4" foot with a guide). I'd actually be a little worried using a serger given the blade (unless you disable the blade) or you could defeat any careful trimming/squaring you had done.

That said, sergers certainly are fast and the seams they create are durable. I like mine for home dec sewing and might try it for a quilt binding in the future.

I also can't see the advantage of using a serger. To me a flange binding is the faster way to bind a quilt.

I have an issue with the way the binding ends are joined, or I should say not joined. Those ends can be sewn in a seam that can not be distinguished from any other seam in the binding. Jenny Doan from Missouri Star has it almost right. My method is even a little easier. I press a triangle into the beginning tail. Do not cut off the triangle here. When you get to the end, cut off the ending tail at the bottom of that triangle. Then finish that seam as you did every seam in the binding. Then you can press that seam open and trim off the seam allowance.

The only advantage I see is speed since the serger goes faster. I would be more concerned that I would get out of my straight alignment with the serger and once cut there is no turning back for a repair. Great idea to share however.

It is always good to know other ways of accomplishing a task. I would use my serger if the batting was thick, top and batting had lots of seams, it would really flatten everything down before folding over.
