OK....saw this on Facebook. It's a different way to do a binding to reduce bulk. Looks interesting....opinions?

I thought that was how everyone did binding. Am I missing something?

I do it by folding the binding in half and stitch through both both layers of the binding. It is bulkier....does that make sense?

Ok I see what she is doing but after you wash it a couple times will the binding that wasn't sewn down roll or bunch up?

If the binding is pulled down snugly and sewn to the back I don't think it would have room to roll up. I like this technique. It is difficult to do corners sometimes because of the bulk. It would also save some fabric since you aren't cutting your binding strips as wide. It also eliminates folding and pressing all those long binding strips. It always gets off kilter and is hard to correct. I hate that part so this would be a plus. You would have a nice guideline to press it to.

May have to try it.

I may give it a try since I will have to bind all the quilts that are lined up for quilting! If the corners come out nice it would definitely be worth using!

I tried this technique this morning. I think I like it. I haven't sewn the backs down yet but I did fold them over and for only missing one layer of fabric in the corners, they felt a lot thinner to me. It was easy, I liked that I didn't have to press those long binding strips in half. I think for me, this technique is a keeper.

Yay....good to know! For sure it would be better on wall hangings, smaller projects.

Do you think this will work if I sew the binding to the back and machine stitch it to the front? Will the corners look good?

I don't see why this wouldn't work for that Linda. The corners almost folded themselves. I'd give it a try on a little scrap sandwich and see how it looks. Nothing ventured and all that jazz... coolsmiley

I like the corners, they look good, but I just don't think I like the seam around the back of the quilt when you stitch it on by machine. So I'll just sew to front and hand stitch on. I was trying to find a quicker way to bind since I have so many quilt to get done. Oh well I guess I'll have to watch a few movies while I do them by hand!

I tried it this morning with the "magic binding" technique. It works. I did find it a little harder to keep the flap (shorter side) tucked under, maybe because of the extra seam???? It did help just a little with the bulk in the corners. I am working on some table runners and used matching thread on the back so the extra row of stitching is not a big deal on these projects.

TxM I'm having trouble with the short side slipping too! I just started a quilt and maybe I'll get the hang of it, if not I'll go back to my old way. The corner is a little less bulky but not enough if the short side slips all the way around! I do agree with you on small projects the seam around the back would be ok for runners and hangings.

It didn't slip when I did it the regular way but when I did it with the built in flange I had problems. That is why I was guessing maybe the extra seam in there caused a small problem. I wonder if a bit of glue would solve the problem?
