Quilt Binding Tip

Here's a quick tip for binding your quilt.

I always 'test fit' my binding before I sew it to my quilt. I do this so I can be sure that my binding join seams do not end up in the corners where they would create too much bulk to make perfectly mitred corners.

You will notice (on the lower right corner of the picture) that I didn't cut off the 'tails' where I joined the binding strips. It makes it MUCH easier to see the seams when I do this test fitting! I'll trim those after the binding is sewn to the quilt.
