    Thanks for posting. I always seem to twist mine.

    I still get tangled up with tails. As a result, I use the "pocket method" by Heirloom Creations. Fool proof - and I am often the biggest fool. Attaching the binding starts at 2:49. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWh90tXr7g4

    I have never seen that 90 degree fold trick anywhere, can't wait to try it! I always get twisted up....
    Quilts may come, and quilts may go, but the stitches stay the same.

    I hadn't seen it either but it sure helps from keeping me all twisted. I have used it a few times and it works like a charm.

    I always tuck my ends inside each other and join my ends straight across. It is much easier for me than fiddling with the diagonal and getting it to fit just right. I decided that 100% of people getting a quilt from me could care less and it wouldn't even occur to them that somewhere on the quilt the binding is pieced together, so they wouldnt even look at that part.
