    I actually like sewing on binding. I do it the old way, double fold then machine stitch to front matching raw edges, hand stitching to the back. I think us hand quilters are not fazed by any kind of stitching by hand. And it is pretty easy mindless work.

    I also machine to front and hand sew to back. I dislike machine quilting, but
    enjoy hand sewing the binding.

    If you go one and off the edge with a uniform stitch, it doesn't appear to be a mistake. If I understand the Missouri Star binding queens, that's how they finish quilts that customers want them to machine bind.
