MQR also has a FREE video on applying binding on a longarm.

Here's a link to their free videos.

The U-Tube 3 part video is great!! Just be patient with the downloads, it is well worth watching. That is the slickest way to apply the binding I've ever tried. However I wasn't as patient as I should have been and I thought I knew it all. It worked but next time, I will find the middle of my binding and start at the top like you are supposed to do. Why do I always have to make things harder for myself?:D:D I used my hopping foot as a guide instead of a ruler. Next time it will be perfect!!

I tried it, too, only made the mistake of starting at the bottom of the quilt and applied the binding as I rolled back. BUT, the miters at the top end didn't come out right because I was folding up and down the wrong way. Guess there IS a reason to do it as we are shown !!!! ;) I also learned from the U Tube video..........very good.

Angie, it looks like you have to establish an account with MQR in order to watch the free videos.

Once you have an account, you go to Forums and scroll way down the page to Videos and you should find the free ones.

I had watched the YouTube videos suggested by Michelle some time ago, but I still wasn't convinced. This morning, I attached my first binding using my longarm. I'm hooked:) Sheryl, thanks for the reminder to find the middle of the binding and to start at the top. The process went much more smoothly than I expected. Georgene, thanks for the info on the MQR video. I will look have a look at that video for hints to make this even more fun!

I made a binding for the quilt I am working on now and as I pressed it, I found the center and marked with a pin. Then folded the ends in toward the middle so now I can lay the binding at the top of the quilt and start stitching it down, unfolding the ends as I go. After I got the ends folded to the center, I tied them loosely with a scrap of fabric. I am anxious to give this a try. I put a binding on before with the LA, but didn't have it folded up and then had these long tails to contend with. :(

Linda, I think I can visualize what you are saying about the binding.....finding middle, making two rolls of the binding, one on each side of the middle, then you can work from center out.
