Binding a quilt used to be the thing I hated most in life. It was difficult for me, I didn't understand the mechanics of it, and, most of all, I hated the end part. (read more)
My binding never ended seamlessly, you could always tell exactly where I'd tried to put it all together, and it was just an incredibly frustrating experience. More frustrating because I was done with my quilt, I was ready for it to look great, but I was ending on a BLAT, instead of a high note.
Don't get me wrong, I tried to do it different ways, but no matter what type of tutorial I watched or read, nothing really clicked.
Until I found this method.
It's really so simple, and that's why I'm so excited to share it with you.

HOW TO JOIN BINDING ON A QUILT IN
Whatever your measurement is, lay your binding flat on your quilt, then measure that amount from the pin TOWARD the gap you haven't yet bound. Make a mark on your binding.
So for me, this would be a mark on my binding that is 1.5 inches from the pin.
Trim both bindings on the marks you just made.
Pin them in place, and get ready to sew.
