I've always have trouble with binding. This is a pretty good tutorial with good pics.

When it comes to abutting the ends, do so, then cut one at the meeting point and the other one the same measurement as the width of the binding.

I use 2 1/2" Double folded/French folded binding method (same as shown in the tutorial) so I cut the overlap at 2 1/2".

There are as many takes on the overlap as there are stars in the sky Here is one that is pretty neat (as in cool!) when joining the ends of the binding.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Sewwolf for starting this thread.

I am a very novice quilter - if you can even call me a quilter - and joining the binding, especially at the ends - is what gets me every time! So I have loved these tutorials.

I am about to start a baby quilt made out of flannel - which likes to stretch and move at the best of times. This quilt is going to be too large to use an envelope method which I am not too keen on anyway.

I think I am going to try the Sharon Shamber method. I think the glue will help alot with the fraying problem inherent with flannel and make those edges much more stable. I am also going to try using a spray starch on the rest of the pieces as well.

BTW - has anybody used/heard of this thing called "The Binding Tool"? It looks like a really cool tool to help with that final join for those who are not into using glue. You can see it on this site:
That Binding Tool

It seems like it would be a great tool to have. I am in the process of seeing if I can buy it where I live or if they will ship it to me in Canada (hopefully at not 2X the cost.)

I put this on my desktop with the rest of the quilting stuff. Pretty soon the entire desktop of my computer will be filled with quilting ideas, sites and blogs.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

I had too many shortcuts also and found I could reduce the number of shortcuts by creating a folder shortcut for each of my favorites.

I have one for quilting, one for sewing and one for machine embroidery.

The folder opens as a shortcut and inside are all the shortcuts pertaining to the title of the folder.

Great binding tutorials for self made binding

But

I'm using a ropey premade binding and can't figure out how anyone makes these ends meet??

I've tried melting it (black ugly mess), then fray check didn't keep them stuck together or keep the ropey stuff from fraying. The last Pillow I made I put a handle over both edges where this ropey binding met, in hopes the neighbor I gave this pillow to, wouldn't notice

Ok here is a picture of the ropey binding at the bottom of this Pie Shaped Pillow

Any tips on putting this type of Binding together?

Joining lip cord

I find that in reality it looks easier than it actually is.
