    I try to stop at 1/4 but most times end up just sewing off and then taking couple stitches out when I pull it back before folding back over. Sometimes I stop and then sew off diagonal before removing from machine. I think in one quilt I used all three methods!

    Now how to you start sewing after the fold over... start at the 1/2 in mark or just from the outside of fold and straight down. One way does make turning easier on other side, but I am not always good at hitting that 1/4 spot for starting.

    Thanks for all of the comments. It is nice to see different thoughts for this step in binding a quilt I have had success with both B and C but most often I use C

    I use the technique Denise uses except I hadn't heard of the changing stitch length. I find that pivoting and sewing off the quilt and folding the binding to make a miter works best for me.

    Oh, when I restart, I start 1/4 back, and go backwards to the edge, then forward, cuz it helps reduce thread tangles that can occur when begining to sew forward at the edge.
    This is my preferred way also. I have tried several and find this works best for me.
