Self-binding a Quilt Tutorial

Self-Binding Quilt Tutorial
Self Binding means: 
Bring the quilt backing to the front and using it as your binding, I am bring this over from The Quilt Ladies, this post is used and asked for all the time, Thank you for that.
Step by Step How to do Self Binding on a Quilt Make your quilt block, add batting heat resistant, and quilt. Trim the batting even with your quilt top
How to do Self Binding on a QuiltCut you backing 1″ from the quilt edge

How to do Self Binding on a QuiltFold the backing to the edge of the quilt, 1/2″, I like to press it down

How to do Self Binding on a Quilt
Again, fold the backing over onto the quilt top, make sure you are on the quilt top with the edge, this is your sewing edge, pin it down
How to do Self Binding on a QuiltFold the corner over as shown
And then do the steps as before, 
fold over half way and
then fold over half way again. 
Pin well.
Sometimes at the corner you will have to move it around a bit
to make the corner perfect, go slow and pin well. 
When I get it like I like,  pin and I press a bit, between pins and at the corner
it holds it just a bit better. 
Remember, pressing is up and down with an iron. 
Doing it up and down your fabric will not stretch or move.
With your machine sew along the backing edge, do a few back stitches to hold ends

I like doing 2 rows of stitching, just my personal like.
