I have always made my binding but need to use prepackaged this time. I can't figure out how to use this tape on the corners. I can't seem to use the knowledge I have for my own binding on the prepackaged stuff. I'm just not that familiar with it. I know there is a single fold, double fold, etc. Do I have the wrong fold (single). I would appreciate any help, advice, etc.

I guess it is a matter of preference, but I use the double fold and it goes around corners rather nicely. I sew it to the front of the quilt edge and then fold it toward the back and hand stitch it down.

Hope that makes sense,

Linda D.

Isn't that a bit narrow, or is it a different product than I'm thinking of?

I gave up trying to use the packaged, i like mine too much. Can't remember how to turn the corner but i remember not liking how it turned out.

I may give up before trying. My friend gave it to me to us on her baby quilt but I think I may just make my own. I would have already had it done instead of trying to use what she gave me. This is the first time I've been on this site (found it by accident) and think I may have found a place to ask questions.
I can tell you up front, I will have a lot more questions than I will ever have answers. Thanks to everyone for your support.
I feel like I have found a wealth of knowledge with the touch of a key.
WONDERFUL

I do what Linda D does...
I get the double fold, machine stich the front, wrap it around to the back and hand sew
Or I make my own
