As I started quilting and scouring the internet for tips and tutorials on how to quilt and do things the best way, I had a good list of tutorials that I pulled from for good bindings. I have since found ONE that I love and live by! Cristy said I could share the video on my blog, and so I will. This is her mother, Sharon Schamber, who is AMAZING!!! She does an amazing job sharing her amazing skills on how to create the perfect binding. If you haven't tried glue basting yet, DO IT! Every time I glue baste anything now (which I glue baste everything I possible can) I always think, "this must be what's it's like to sew in heaven." No pins = heaven! Perfect results = heaven! What more can I say?!
If you haven't seen this video yet, it's a little long, but it's SO worth it. :)
Thank you Sharon & Cristy!!
