Binding- How To Bind a Quilt

My favorite binding method:

Cut bias strips (45 degrees diagonally across the fabric), 3" wide and as long as required. Seam as needed. Fold in half lengthwise (wrong sides together) and press. Place the binding on the back with raw edges even. Stitch. Flip around to the front and stitch close to the edge. At each corner simply make a small tuck and continue sewing around the quilt. This is a sample I use for classes. You can see the steps illustrated. The white side is the back and the print side is the front. I have a booklet "Flip Quilt, Table Runner, Coasters Instruction 309" in the pattern section of my shop at that provides more instructions.
