Want to ask what method of closing your quilt binding is most popular here.

I have my first side of my binding set with the corners mitered and ready to close the second side.

I can never seem to get the second seam to run true along the first seam so that is looks really tidy. It is ok, just not really tidy. I want it to run just to the inside of the first seam so when you look at the back it looks awesome...mind does not look awesome.

Maybe I should just adopt the hand-stitched method for closing my binding and just deal with the extra time it takes. It is a good way to go to my happy-zen place, anyway, with the hand-stitching.

How do you usually close your binding?

Hi Cinca:

I have always hand stitched my binding. I also put little hidden stitches in the mitered corners to hold them in place. Just my thing and I enjoy taking a rest from the sewing machine once the quilt is nearly finished...kind of like your happy-zen place.

That's a relief to hear. I think 35 yrs of production sewing put me in a mind-set to do everything by machine, when hand sewing is sometimes more appropriate.

I have started closing my binding by hand and feel way better already.

Thanks.

Hi, I just went to google and typed in "quilt binding tutorials" and a
bunch of neat looking ones popped up. Good Luck.
