Step 4: Attach tape to the back of your quilt

This is super-important. Pin the bias tape to the back of your quilt with the raw edges of the bias tape even with the edges of the quilt. Read that a few more times and think hard about what it says. All the raw edges involved will be stacked up together when you get done. Quilt top on the bottom, batting, quilt back, then the two raw edges of your bias tape, in that order.

When you get to the corner, you do the same fold and turn method that you use for the traditional sew-in-on-the-front method. This gives you a nice mitered corner.

<p>Very fun directions! Thanks for sharing! :)</p>
<p>I'm disappointed that this does not show or tell in detail how to make the mitered corner.</p>
<p>Sorry about that, Katie, but how to miter the corner is outside the scope of this instructable and there are plenty of awesome tutorials elsewhere that can help you with your corners. They are a tutorial all to themselves which is why I didn't include it here. Here is a link to get you started: http://bit.ly/1EVQ6Wu</p>
Just what i need! Nice, simple, easy to follow.
Thank you! I have a bunch of those fancy stitches on my machine and a quilt I can't get around to sewing on the binding because it came out so ugly, but I use it to keep warm - so now I am going to finish it.
It looks nice with the decorative stitch!<br />
