Here's how I do it:
So far, this is an ordinary way to get ready to bind a quilt. Stay with me here, it's about to get different.
You can also see a corner here. I'm sewing them the standard way--stitch to within 1/4 in. of the edge, back stitch, take the quilt out of the machine, reposition the quilt and binding, and start sewing again 1/4 in. from the corner.
I fiddle with the corners until I have a folded miter. (I tried to take a picture of this, but it didn't turn out.) I make sure to press it well, and secure it with pins.
Doing the binding this way helps me finish more quilts. Plus it's nice and sturdy.
So, 3 done last week, one for our guild's charity stack and two for Quilts for Kids.
The snow is starting to melt here, but I'm not sure I believe in spring yet. I'm going to enjoy it anyway.
Enjoy your week!
