    I charge .30 to machine sew to front & hand sew to back. Granted I don't get a LOT of binding work, but a few ladies will pay *shrugs*. Myself, I would prefer to do my own binding :)

    I send all my quilts to a longarmer and she does my binding, I think she charges about 5 cents per inch. She does a great job, alot better than I do. I do my own binding on the smaller projects though.

    I do my own quilting and binding. My favorite part of making a quilt is the binding step. Putting on the binding is like framing a picture.

    I like to do binding. I enjoy making it myself and it gives me something to do when I am at dialysis. Since I have tobe there for 4hrs, I can usually get a quilt done fairly easily. I have only sent 1 quilt out to a LAQ because it was too big for my machine. It was about twin size and I don't have the space to accomodate anything that big. I usually don't make anything bigger than crib size, so it usually isn't a big deal.

    I love to do the bindings myself. After some practicing its not difficult anymore. I learned it by watching movies on you tube. :) I prefer to cut the bindings myself. I love to do that because after it's done the quilt is finally finished all by myself.

    I love to do the binding so I do my own. It gives me something to do in the evenings.

    Penny an inch seems pretty cheap. If it's a 60" square quilt, that's like $2.40. I want at least $10 for my time :-D
    Maybe she charges a penny per square inch of the quilt, so a 6x60 would cost $36 ... that seems more likely.

    I would not pay that much to have it done.

    Take a look at this. It may help you. I also like to do the binding, but she has quilted some tops for me. This how she makes a liveing, and people go to her for what thay can not or don't like to do.
