Blind ladder stitch for binding....

Hi all...I hope everyone had a great 4th....I have a question...while searching the internet I came across a lady who does the blind ladder stitch for her binding. Has anyone ever tried this? It looked pretty easy. She said that it did take alittle longer but I did like the results. Please let me know. Thanks and have a great day.

Yup, that's what I do too. Didn't know it had a name - I've done it that way all the years I've been quilting.

I always done it that way. It makes a nice finished binding and almost invisible seam

Thanks for the feed back. I am so glad that I am not loosing it...I too knew this as a slip stitch and I thought mabey it was another one of those things that your mom call's something and the rest of the world knows it as something else. I will be trying this tonight on my quilt...Thanks again

I think whip stitch is the other way but I'm not sure.

If it's a slip stitch, then that's the only method I know! What are others using to sew their bindings down. Also, mine are sewn binding to right side of quilt, turn binding to back of quilt and hand sew using a slip stitch. I haven't made as many quilts as some have, but this is the only way I have done it so far. RT in Houston

Slip stitch. That's what was missing in my brain before. I always close pillows etc. like that.

opps! It's obvious I didn't get an A+ in spelling......Tayloring, should be Tailoring. LOL - Years ago when we lived in Japan my husband brought home a cute little puppy that we named Taylor.

I just looked at the tutorial. That's the same way I stitch my binding. It does make a nice finish. I really can't tell you if it takes any longer because that's the only way I've done it. After reading what Betty posted, I have to agree. My mom also called it a slip stitch. I remember taking a Tayloring class in High School and using that stitch for the coat I made. It was all about the neat finish and no stitches showing to make the teacher happy. I doubt they even offer classes like that now days. I did get an A+ in the class!

That is very interesting, will be trying this on my next quilt binding. Just did one the other day, oh well. But I always do them by hand because I dont like using my machine for finishing.

I think that's how I do mine, too.
