    cut strips about 2.5 wide, fold in half and iron as you go...
    sew to the right side of the quilt, bring to back and pin and hand stitch on the back...
    if you absotively hate hand sewing, just pin and machine stitch...

    does not have to be on the bias and the double layer makes it last a little longer :)
    i do it this way but i stitch it to the back. bring the fold to the fron and machine stitch with a decorative stitch. A blanket stitch looks nice.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm thinking of taking you up on the binding offers.

    :-)

    I really love those colors in the quilts you posted. What do you think of the spring one in the book with the floral prints?

    OUTSTANDING! Awesome.

    That's a great book. They go together fast and are just stunning. I'm laying out and selecting colors for my "blue" one. I want to use colors like you've used in yours.

    Absolutely Beautiful! I like doing the binding while I watch TV in the evenings.

    Wow, what a gorgeous quilt! Why in the world would you NOT put the binding on after all that work? Do you need help?

    Thanks, everyone. I will bind it!

    It was easy to make. Some of you more experienced sewers/quilters could put that together in a day.

    It's made up mostly of batiks.

    I go ga-ga over batiks. I like ELECTRIC color, eye popping color.

    If you use the same color threat as the binding it is a lot more forgiving. I got where I don't pin the binding to the back but use a needle turn method. Works for me. By the way great quilt and once the binding is done you will be glad you did the whole thing all by yourself! :lol:
