Hi Clara, I see you are the proud owner of a Susan Cleveland quilt. As you can see the binding is perfect. I noticed a lot of conversation about binding this month. My binding either comes out good or it comes out "OMG. where did I go wrong"? This month I had to finish a doll swap quilt before going in for surgery. So what I did was watch Susan Cleveland's YouTube video called Piping Hot Binding. I did not have any piping in the house so I skipped that but use the rest of the method. It is a little weird sewing backwards. My corners and edges came out perfect. I did not hand sew the other side as the neck pain made that impossible for me. I machine sewed it in the same manner as adding the binding with the needle going down right next to the binding strip. It gave it a clean finish on the back. My quit was only 20 x 20" but it made a big difference on the finished product.
