    This was SO HELPFUL! I admit my first quilt binding was rushed and very amateur looking. I cannot wait to use this information on my next quilt. Thank you so much, Diane!

    Dear Diane, you are a life saver! I was so mixed up not knowing how to do a corner in the binding on the quilt i am making and then found you tutorial. You are a wonderful teacher, so clear and calm ! Even for Dutch ears! Thank you so much for this great tutorial, it makes the finishing of the large quilt for my granddaughter such a pleasure. Kind regards, Petra van Seventer, Haarlem --The Netherlands

    This lady talks way to slow, she left her rotary cutter with the blade exposed, and she should have had her fabric closer to her front to utilize the whole cutting mat. I couldn't watch the whole video, due to boredom.

    Thank you Diane for a very comprehensive tutorial on making and applying binding. This is great information, well presented. Diane, you are a very accomplished quilter and a great instructor - thanks once again.

    I am a new quilter. I have watched many tutorials. Yours was so easy to understand. We’re you a teacher?

    I noticed that it appears you have stitched 1/8" away from the edge all around the quilt. Should this always be done?

    There are much easier ways to do binding.

    I really like the way the binding was joined at the end! Away from you, right binding up!!
