As I’ve learned to quilt, I amassed three or four different tools to help me close bindings. What I found is that, while the tools work fine, less is more.
I attended a course at a local Original Sewing & Quilting expo, titled, “The Simple Binding”. It was hosted by a gentleman who had been judging quilts for years. He showed us a technique to attach and close the binding on your quilt without extra tools or rulers. I love it, and this is how I close my quilts 100% of the time now.
