    Length of binding?

    Getting ready to bind my first quilt, actually a table runner. I've watched the tutorial and looked at some photos. Does the binding really only need to be the same size as the perimeter of the quilt? My runner is made up of 2 inch squares and I was going to take the left-over material and make more squares end-to-end for the binding. My real question is whether I have to do something at the corners like add extra fabric so that the binding will match as I turn the corner.

    I don't "add" anything to the corners. I do make my binding about 18-24" longer than what I'll need for the quilt so I can have the overlap needed for closing out the binding.

      Hi,

      Here's a link to a video I made on how to make continuos binding for a quilt. Hopefully it will answer your questions! Just click on the little yellow square and the video should start.
