    I really luck out on this one!! My hubby spray bastes my quilts for me and I bind them before I start quilting them!! He is a perfectionist and I have had no problems with this!!!

    I use my serger. It gives the edge I like for putting the binding over and it trims my piece (squares it up).

    Thanks for your input.
    I always baste edges and sandwich stage but if extra is needed do more before binding
