    Thank you Mary Anna. That was great. Your tut was easy to follow and added information I did not know and would have made a mess if you had no brought it to my attention. I decided I would like to add gathered lace to the turnover edging. Can I sew it on at the same time as doing the edging or should I add it as a next step?

    Thank you for the tute. Very informative and a nice way to finish a quilt. I will try this method next time I bind a quilt.

    This is the way I learned many years ago and I really like it. If someone is doing a complete hand quilt I think the other way may be important but for every day quilting this is great. I always tied my quilts also could not afford the time or money to quilt or have them quilted now I finally have to machine quilts that I had quilted and still have not done the border. Hope to get them done this year but time is running out thanks for posting this.

    You can actually do a mitered corner with the self binding, I've seen that as well! Whatever works for you is great!
    Kind Regards,

    I was so glad to see this. I'm self taught and did it this way for years. I mitered the corners, but always felt I was cheating and was ashamed to show my work to ''real'' quilters. Now I feel so much more happy with my otherwise good work. Thank you! :-) :-) :-)
