Have you tried this binding tool?
I saw it demonstrated at Paducah and didn’t buy it then, but later won it in a drawing at Missouri Star Quilt Company. There is a tutorial at the link, but the one below is a little more explanatory.
Leave a 12 inch opening
For the other side, flip the tool over and follow the same procedure except put the tip of the tool on the marked line and then cut on the diagonal line. It took me a couple of times doing it wrong before I remembered this difference.
Sew the diagonal seam (1/4 inch) and finish attaching the binding to your quilt. It’s easy to use with good results. I would prefer that my tool be transparent instead of blue, but it works fine and it was free!
(I’m not associated with this company…just sharing a handy tip!)
