- Photo 1: I verify that the ruler and needle are in the proper alignment. I start stitching in the middle of a side leaving about 10 inches of tail. I don't use the binding joining tool but if you have one, follow those instructions.
- Photo 2: When I get to a corner I fold back the binding and crease it so I know how far down I can stitch.
- Photo 3: I then fold the binding so that it is aligned to the edge of the quilt. I fold at a 45 degree angle to align with the bottom edge of the quilt. I stitch from the corner along that next edge. After working my way around the quilt I leave another 10-12 inches of tail to join the two ends of the binding together. Of course I forgot to take pictures but there are lots of great YouTube videos on how to do this.
- Photo 4: I flip the binding to the front and stitch in the ditch in the flange area. If I am being very particular, I press the binding on the back towards the edge so that I have an even fold-over to the front of the quilt. Again, there are great YouTube videos on using this technique to turn the corners and continue stitching around the quilt. Here is a link so you can pick your favorite.
