For the longest time I was afraid of binding my own quilts. It was something I always needed help with and for some reason it just wasn’t clicking. It was especially hard to get the concept of joining the binding ends together.
I finally took the time to sit down with my mom and have her show me and then I did it on my own several times and that was the trick. I needed to provide myself the time and mind space to make it happen for me. I became proficient at binding my own quilts but the first time someone asked me to show them was still unnerving. I didn’t want to mess up someone else’s binding. It went fine and the person was pleased with the binding.
Below is the video I recorded of my mom showing how to join the binding ends on a quilt. I follow these steps and it works every time for me.
