    I'vebeen doing the self binding method for years on fast quilts. My grandmother taught me how to do it and she learned as a young girl. I found a blog that has a tutorial how to do it. It's much easier to link to that then try to explain it. :D

    I just started using the flat metal clips (look like hair clips). They hold the binding real tight and are easy to remove.

    If it had teeth, it would have bit me on the nose. Why didn't I think of that?

    This is my favorite video on how to do binding by machine....

    Binding tips from Elisa Wilson at QuiltersTV.com

    http://www.quilterstv.com/?bcpid=133...s_&_techniques

    altho this past weekend I saw 'Sewing with Nancy' and she did it just about the same except cut the ends of her binding and it turned out great but without being able to watch it again, I'm afraid to try it from 'memory', LOL

    If you have never been to quilterstv.com, they have fabulous videos to watch for free....lots of them, and many with known quilt artists.

    warm quilt hugs, sue

    Do what works best for you Jamie, and don't give a second thought about the way other quilters do theirs. I often use Butterfly's method of just making the back larger and making this into a binding. It's perfectly good for family type quilts, baby quilts, tv quilts. If you plan on doing show quality then of course the binding will have to be done in a more traditional manner. But, quilting should make you happy, not stressed, so do what works best for you. :)
