Default Binding a quilt

After all of these years of quilting and binding quilts, I am still not happy with the way my bindings look. I am a visual learner. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good video on how to bind your quilt with perfect mitered corners? I have watched a few and am still at a loss.

I have gone to UTube several times and watched and have always felt I gained a lot of practical help.

Donna Jordan's tutorial on binding was super helpful for me. Her website is jordanfabrics.com.

These are my favorite methods. We were give instructions to watch these prior to a class project involving inside and outside corners. I linked them all so you can choose the one you want.

You want to make sure the corners are folded with a 45 degree. Sometimes I lay the binding on the cutting mat to get the true angle.

ETA: The stitch off in the corner really helps too and worth the effort.

It is like a lot of quilting, practice, practice. I use to have problems mitering the corners. I just kept trying, eventually it all just worked.

I agree, since learning this I always do it and my corners improved quite a bit. I also find doing the few stitches out to the raw edge corner helps me to make a true 45 degree angle.

This is Sharon Schamber's binding video. I find it so soothing to listen to her. It's the only method I've tried and it works great.

Patrick Locke’s technique works best for me.
