Then I stitch in the ditch from the front and catch the binding on the back. I used to hand sew the binding in the back, but finished is better than waiting-for-years-to-be-finished..
I stitch to the back and then wrap to the front and run a narrow sitch along the edge. I find it looks neat and clean and feels really secure. If I'm feeling *fancy* I use one of the decorative stitches and a contrasting thread.

Very good idea - I just might steal that.
