This really does create the most perfect binding ever! Sharon Schamber's technique for perfect binding of straight edge quilts.

This really does create the most perfect binding ever! Sharon Schamber's technique for perfect binding of straight edge quilts. The last few minutes are the best. I do all of my bindings this way and they're awesome every time.

Joining the ends of binding... :) I love this way of doing it. It's basically undetectable as to where you started and ended! :)

Binding: Open the tails. With right sides together, place one on top of the other at a right angle. Join the strips with a diagonal seam. Before stitching, check to be sure the strips are not twisted. Trim the seam allowance to and finger-press open.

Spin Those Four-Patch Seams!

Making large numbers of 4 patches to join into checkerboard strips -- get all the seam allowances to nest, and have the center bulk "spin" to lay flat.
