Thanks. Now I see what you're saying. And I agree, great visuals. I was able to print this out with your pictures so I can use it for reference.

You're welcome. I hope I didn't overstep because this wasn't my original post. My apologies to fromthenestdesigns. Major props to her/him for starting this thread.

It's just that I am so enthusiastic about this stitch and I'm a visual learner so thought pictures were the best way to explain.

Janie,
Thanks for the visuals on Ladder Stitch Binding!! You did an awesome job "re-explaining" it.
Two heads are better than one you know!!!
I'm really glad everyone is getting on board with this awesome way of doing binding.
Happy Binding everyone!!
Robin

Before I became disabled I worked in an upholstery shop. That is the way I was taught to close pillow openings after they were stuffed. The owner of the shop (who happens to be my mother in law) has always used that method for hand sewing. It works really great and is easy once you get the hang of it.

So true!!! I've used it to repair a tear in a sofa and also a lined jacket that would have been impossible to mend. It's a very versatile stitch!!!
Thanks for sharing!

I did my last binding this way, having learned this from Sharon Schamber. What a wonderful way to do bindings now, especially if you will be showing your quilts.

Thanks so much for the great visuals, too. Excellent!

i've always done my binding that way . it's very strong and invisible. when you look at it, it's almost impossible to see that it was stitched at all.
