There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I'm not a big fan of the usual way to sew binding on, I prefer this (skip to step 2): http://mysweetprairie.blogspot.ca/p/binding-1-2-3.html
It just seems so much more logical and easier to keep straight and even. Less fussiness when making the tape too. And I LOVE the wonder clips instead of pins, I ordered a bunch from aliexpress for pretty cheap so now I've got enough to go round even a larger quilt.

This is the method I have used! But my scrappy bias tape is still not pressed for quilt binding, just the standard single-fold bias tape as shown in this image that I "borrowed" from the interwebs.  Wink

We got those clips for my MIL for xmas (using a 60% coupon at JoAnn) and I think I may be using one of my 50% to get some for me in the near future!
