    I highly recommend the class how to bind a quilt by Susan Cleveland on craftsy. You learn really everything about bindings and I keep returning to that class, when I am unsure about something. Her "dolphin " explanation about how to join the ends has saved me from ripping out everything several times.

    The pocket method made binding stress free for me the first time I tried it. I was really sweating over how to do my first binding. I spent hours googling tut's and found that one. Tried it, loved it. Done deal.

    I used this tutorial on the last quilt I made and it worked great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BT1pl_IolE

    As a somewhat beginner, this one was easy and quick for me.

    Same thing here - I fall back on a tutorial nearly every time I bind! Any time I only need my seam ripper a couple of times is a good day!

    I just completed a project where I detailed how I do my bindings. Maybe it will help?

    binding the quilt is getting easier for me ( been quilting for a month so very new) it is the mitered corners when I hand stitch the back on. Those corners I tell you. They look ok but they are not "smooth" looking to real peak point . I really don't know how to explain it.

    So, it takes time and practice. Thank you for asking the question. Thank you all for the responses as I bookmarked and appreciate the help you have given

    I have used this method for a few years now. It works for me.
