From the Blogger: "Find an illustrated guide to sewing a basic binding onto a quilt or other blanket. This thorough tutorial teaches you through pictures and words. You will learn how to cut strips, attach a binding with the machine, how to sew around corners, and finally how to finish the binding with an invisible stitch. This is the final process in creating a quilt, but this technique can be used for basic baby blankets or other projects as well."

Thank you for sharing this great tutorial! I have made binding for simple blankets but never thought to use starch in the binding for extra crispness. I think this is a wonderful tip and wish I knew it before! It seems like this would make it easier to keep it in line and the finished work looks better too! The tip,about the four inches for the over lap when completed is great too! Really looks so professional and would rival any store bought work for sure!
