Quilt binding tips

At our last meeting, we discussed different ways to finish/bind a quilt. There about as many ways to finish a quilt as there are quilters, and everyone has a preferred method.

Some of us use a physical tool, like the Binding Tool, while others prefer just a ruler and a few calculations (see the Members Only section for both Melanie's and Cinzia tutorials on quilt binding methods and measurements).

There is also a "no math" method that Nicole shared (you can skip to 2:50 for that specific technique):

How to Bind a Quilt by Heirloom Creations

I'd never seen this one before... I will have to try it on my next finish! At the end of the tutorial, she also explains the "puffy binding" technique that Stacy was talking about during our discussion.

Do you have a binding technique that you love? Share it in the comments!
