I'm all bound up!

Raise your hand if you find it difficult to add binding...

Please raise your hand if you're good at applying binding and have some tips to share with the rest of us bound up sewers...

If you've raised your hand for either statement, please stay after class. You've got some "splainin' to do!" (Name the TV show).

I love the look of matching binding, it adds so much character to a project. But honestly, who can tell me why one time, it's a snap to apply and then another, so very difficult?

If your hand is in the air, wildly waving at me, please stay after class; you've got some splainin' to do!

ummmmm....my hand is NOT raised, I just wanted to say that "You've got some splanin to do" is from the Fabulous "I Love Lucy Show". We watch it, regularly, on PBS.

OK, first things first...when my Grandma says "I'm all bound up!" It has a totally different meaning! (snicker*snicker*giggle snort) Soooo your post title, caught me off guard and I thought you might have hit on the one topic I'd prefer you not post about! :) Secondly, I have bound several quilts with my Aunt Shirley's sure fire method...if you are interested, let me know..it's published in a book...I'll send you a copy, of the instructions, not the book (I'm cheap!) ~ but keep it on the downlow, I'm pretty sure that breaks copyright laws!

Um, have you ever tried using those snappy hair clips to hold the binding in place? They work better than straight pins.
