    This is a really wonderful addition to quilts to make them stand out on the binding. Thanks.

    Someone posted this link on Facebook. I guess I either wasn't a member of this site when it was first posted or I totally missed it! I love it! I make a lot of Quilts for Kids quilts that require a sewn binding. I love this - it will make them so pretty!!! Thanks much!!

    Such a great idea. With arthritis setting in the hand sewn binding on the back is getting more and more undesirable. Thanks Charismah for sharing.

    Clear instructions, Thanks. I am just this past week finding out about this method of binding and i am planning to use it on my granddaughter's lap quilt that i'm now making.

    Thanks, that's a great solution, and easier than hand stitching the binding to the front/back.

    Call me dumb, but I don't understand the benefit of the flange. Either way, stitching is going to show on the back, which some of you seem to object to. Is it because the stitching (thread color to match the flange) on the front will match the color of the flange fabric on the back?

    It doesn't bother me at all that stitching shows on the back. Stitching is all over the quilt, anyway! I usually sew my binding to the back and then machine stitch it down on the front, using a thread color that matches the binding. One line of stitching appears on the back, but so what? If I've used a binding that goes well with the quilt, why would I care? If I don't want it to show, I machine stitch the binding to the back, turn it and handsew it on the front. I confess that I do often use the backing as binding, if I like it. I just turn it down and sew, either by hand or machine.

    I also admit that I've never made a quilt that I thought would pass the inspection of judges at a quilt competition. Not to say I am sloppy -- I try to make my quilts as perfect as I can -- but I assume there are very precise rules in judging quilts and I may not have met all of them (in that I don't know what they are!). That I'll probably never enter a quilt in a competition doesn't bother me at all, even though I admire those who do -- and win!

    I like the extra color in your binding. It makes the binding pop. My mom said that she likes to make the backing larger than the front and fold it over and sew it on with a single stitch using the machine. The stitch is visible front and back but if the thread matches the backing, it's not very noticeable. I don't like limiting my backing options to suitable binding colors, so I like your method.

    I will be making a couple more twin size quilts soon, and I think I will use your method of binding.

    I used to make costumes and tried and hated most of the invisible thread THEN I found Sulky POLYESTER invisible and really like it. If I were you I would toss that old invisible thread. Most of it is nylon and breaks terrible.
    Sulky will make you a happy quilter. It is available at JoAnn's

    I, too, think the binding needs to be wider than 2 1/2 inches. The stitching on the front does not go on the very edge, it goes nearer the edge of the larger color on the front, which is the smaller of the strips used to make the binding strip. This can be very confusing, so make a sample for yourself and see what happens first hand.
