I am still rather new to quilting and have a binding question. It is not an easy thing for me to do. I have seen it on YouTube videos and have seen online tutorials. There seems to be two ways that people do it.
1. People will fold the binding in half, sew the raw ends of the binding to the front of the quilt, fold the binding over, and then hand stitch the back. That seems to be a lot of work. Can't I do it this way but machine the back to the quilt instead of hand sewing? Does it matter if you see stitches on the binding?
2. People iron the binding in half lengthwise and then sew the binding on by machine. I am having trouble with doing the corners with the smaller quiltie pieces. I am using thinner width binding strips with the smaller squares. I am having problems where the binding will slip and I end up sewing the binding but not to the edge of the quiltie.
So basically, how do you sew your binding on? Any suggestions to help a quilting newbie like me? Thanks in advance, quilters and fabric artists out there!
