Ataching to the back first!!!  So obvious but yet I never tought to do that!  That will make my quilts soooo much nicer-looknig!  I have done the machine-binding, as well, but always joined it to the front first - then I would miss some of the binding on the back, or have to have TOO much overlap so that it doesn't look great - this is fabulous!  Thanks!  Smiley

This is a terrific tutorial - thank you for the great pictures of mitered corners. Have you (or has anyone) ever used disappearing, nylon thread to bind the front side with? So you don't have to worry about the stitches showing the second time you are going round the quilt? Someone suggested this to me, but I've always found disappearing thread to be a bit wonky/stretchy.  wondered if anyone else had tried. Anyway, thanks for tutorial! Grin

I haven't used disappearing thread before on binding, I think I tried to quilt with it once, thinking it would hide my wonky quilting and I didn't care for it. You can also try doing a narrow zigzag stitch on the front in a contrasting thread,  if it's going to show anyways you can just make it a design element! Smiley
