This 9th episode of our series takes you step-by-step through applying the prepared binding strip to the finished quilt, including how to leave tails at the beginning and ending of the binding strips, how to stitch the corners, and how to trim and join the tails with a neat and tidy diagonal seam. Sherri will then show you how to hand stitch the binding to the back, and how to achieve perfect mitered corners.
