    I wish I would have seen this before I cut my batting. I think I am going to try this method anyways...it looks simple. Think I can still do it using a double fold.

    I wonder if you could do the same thing with the fabric folded in half?

    I think the purpose of the double fold for binding is to make it wear well. If you have any old quilts, you will notice that the binding is the first thing to show wear. I would imagine a double fold done this way would have bulk in the corners but for wall hangings or things that didn't take lots of wea,r it sure would be simple to do and very easy to get the square corners. I have a Christmas project I think I'll try it on.

    I'm working on my first quilt top and when I get to the binding part, would this work if I want a double layer of fabric for my binding? Thanks!

    I like a double fold binding and mitered corners. I think they look much more professional. I also like a finished binding on the front 1/4 inch and 1/4 on the back.

    I like to sew binding on with machine, so I guess this wouldn't work for that?

    I agree. If it is a quilt that is to be use, loved, and to last the long haul you need a double layered binding.

    Shouldn't this be in Links and Resources? I can't watch Youtube as my computer is too slow, so I avoid even bothering to try. It is disappointing to get into something that initially gives no indication that it is Youtube. I was looking forward to reading about something that sounded interesting. A waste of time.

    Would using furniture fabric for the binding work with this method? it would be strong so it would last longer. Just a thought...instead of using double binding.

    Sorry you are upset...I am just trying to be helpful and sharing some interesting and good videos for others to also learn. I know that when others find good tutorials it really has helped me. I find videos are easier than pictures though I do learn with both.
