    Clever! I generally roll mine on a tp center. That way it is contained and I can move it out of the way.

    But…But…..that takes all the fun out of it
    getting a chokehold around my neck,
    or falling between my legs on the floor,
    or being rolled over by my chair wheels,
    or running up *under* the whole quilt where I can’t find it,
    or of being just too ha-bitch-uated to think up a better system!!!
    Now you’ve done it! :?

    I usually lay my quilt out and pin the binding to the quilt before I sew it on. This way I know I won't have a seam come out at a corner. And also to make sure I'm going to have enough binding. I also use a walking foot when I sew my binding on.

    I also discovered wrapping on a tp center just lately! Sure makes thing go alot smoother, especially if your doing a big queen or king size quilt!

    Wow, wonder why I didn't think about that. It is so simple. I just finished sewing binding on a lap quilt and used a bowl. I will be sure to use this method with my wall hanging.

    Yep, me too. Especially if I am using bias, I find if I don't pin it first it is more apt to get stretched in places when it is rolled out.
