Thanks Renstar! Next time I am binding I will take more pics and try to clarify what I mean, those are good points and I appreciate the feedback. Smiley

No worries.

 One thing I forgot to mention that is really important; after finishing, I tidied up loose threads, went in to show OH, then flopped down exhausted. Checked the instructions to be sure I hadn't missed anything and eek - I had.

Had to get back up and do the happy binding dance. Then I was done  Grin

I'm just getting into quilting and want to thank you for the clear pics of mitring the corners! My first project was lumpy corners and I opted to make a circle as my second project to avoid those pesky corners!

I machine bind & I'm not ashamed.   Grin  I did hand bind that MAQ I did, but only because I accidentally cut my binding strips too narrow & I had to work them to fit.  And it was small.   Wink  Maybe someday when I'm retired I'll hand bind...although my eyesight will probably be gone by then so I doubt it.

I also use a serger on the edges before I bind them so things stay where they are supposed to.  Shh - don't tell!

I told someone I machine bind the other day and she gave me the snootiest, most disgusted and shocked look. She can suck it!

My quilt shop had a tour going on when I was longarming that wonky baby quilt and I had used brown Crayola washable markers to match the slashes and circles up.  Two women came in whispering and looked at me like I'd broken some cardinal quilting rule since I longarmed it before washing them out.  They can suck it too!  

Oh and as you can see from the pics I posted, it all washed out.  I suppose there is some technical super official way I should have marked them...but chalk wouldn't have shown up real well on the textured grey & I hate those rotary cutters with tracing paper.  I am all for shortcuts too!

I think there are preferences, but no RIGHT way...whatever works...

I am also "guilty" of machine binding, spray adhesive layering, serging the edges (ha ha), and marking with pencil, chalk, whatever shows up!

I am not entering my quilts into any contests so I feel these shortcuts allow me to make more quilts for family and friends to enjoy! Grin
