...I too do mine this way - BUT had not realized I always go to the left like she pointed out .. that's a good to know little detail.

Binding is one of my frustrations. Thank you for sharing this. I'll give it a try. The more I sew, the better it'll go.

I have also used this method before, but I admit I always have to watch the video again to refresh how it's done, lol! Smile

My problem is always in the corners. I've watched those videos too, but still seem to have too much bulk sometimes...not perfected yet!!

cool. I always do mine this way but sometimes I get mixed up of which way I'm turning the ends to match right sides together-does that make sense. So now I pin where I sew to make sure I have it right before I stitch.

I tried this this afternoon. Even though I sewed the ends the wrong direction (seam came out straight, not diagonal) it still came out way better than anything I've come up with before! I'm so delighted you posted this. I've had a lot of trouble with this for a long time. Thank you so much.

Nice little video, thanks for posting. I was taught this method years ago at the LQS - love the way it lays.

Didn't know about the left hand side being the better place for the start/finish because of the 'normal' way people look at things. Will try that with the next quilt.
