    www.youtube.com has some great binding videos and other quilting videos. That's where I learn most things.

    Some nice video's out there! Do a google search. I like the one where you come to the end, fold down and then up.

    I just learned a couple weeks ago from the crafty gemini (google) and then to do the other side of the quilt by machine the Crazy quilt in a day. The crafty gemini really clicked for me. Good luck!

    My two cents, those Sharon Schamber vids are great. I normally trim off everything evenly, then bind...Never again. Two quilts that get LOTS of washing and wear are now wearing out at the binding outside edge. The suggestion to leave a quarter inch of batt sure sounds like good sense now to me.

    Sharon Schambers has the best videos. My binding improved lots after I started using her techniques. What a treasure she is to the quilting world! Good luck on your bindings.

    Go on Utube and watch anything you can that Sharon Schamber has put on Utube, I've learned sooooo much from the ladies here on the board and watching the Utube videos. I'm usually NOT a computer person but WOW!, I love the QB and Utube, lol......

    I love Crafty Gemini! She is easy to follow and repeats for you. Connecting Threads is also very easy to follow. It did the trick for me and I have no more trouble with bindings. Good luck.

    If you are going to machine sew it on, I would recommend that you use a serger to finish your quilt sandwich and prepare it for the binding. This does a couple of things for you. First, it keeps all layers together nicely. Second, it feeds through the machine very nice without a walking foot. Thirdly, it gives you the 1/4 inch mark to make your mitered corners (YouTube tut will explain) without measuring. And lastly, in my opinion, it makes it easier to ensure that your binding is "stuffed."

    One thing that I have learned from a NQA Judge (National Quilt Association) is if you ever plan on entering a quilt in a judged show make sure when you're hand sewing your binding to the back make a couple stitches in the mitered corner on the front and back. They don't want any place where a small finger can get in. She checked every quilt she judged for that.

    I'm so glad this was asked as I am almost to this point too and I haven't done this in years!

    Thanks so much for asking that question! I'm new at quilting; but thought I did a good job with my bindings. After seeing Sharon Schamber's vidios, I'm going to use her method from now on. Thanks also to those of you who gave the links to the videos. I love this Board!!! I learn so much here!

    there are tutorials here on QB, if you think that would help.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye
