      I found this one that I've been using lately: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BT1pl_IolE. I used to get the ends twisted when joining, but now I don't. Start around 5:18 to get to the joining part. He uses a 3" strip though! That's huge!

          I just used this method to join the ends of the binding on my last quilt. It worked like a charm and was really easy to do.

          Oops. I just realized this is the same one that snippet posted.

                I like this method too. The second tute was almost the same, but seemed a little fumbly ( is that a word? lol) to me.

                  Thanks for the links. I like the first one, also. Much clearer instructions.

                      I've always struggled with joining my binding ends, and have fumbled my way thru it each time. This video is the easiest instructions I've seen to date for joining binding.

                        I was just watching the video in the first post, and I noticed that it appears she doesn't put her binding edge flush with the edge of the quilt top because I can see the batting. I've always put my binding flush with the edge of the quilt and then stitched with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Am I looking at that wrong or have I been doing it wrong all this time?

                          If you look closer, you'll see the quilt top is not flush with the batting. But her binding edge is flush with the top of the quilt. So when she trimmed her batting she left about a 1/4 extending beyond the top.

                          I can see reason for doing this, if you want a wider binding but don't want to lose a portion of the border, then you could trim the batting (not flush with the top), in order to accommodate a wider binding without covering more border.

                            I have seen videos of people doing that just for the reason Caroline is describing. So your not doing anything wrong
