Quilt With Us

Does anyone else use a blind ladder stitch for binding their quilts?  It was recommended to me once, but I'd never tried it until this quilt.  If done carefully, it makes a virtually invisible stitch.It took me a little while to get comfortable with it after using what I would call an applique stitch all these years (which is also pretty invisible), but I think I like the results.     

Maybe everyone else uses this stitch already and I'm just late to the party.  :D

Yes! I just learned this last year. Here's a link to a tutorial... http://www.squishycutedesigns.com/ladder-stitch/

I never heard of it, either. I used to use a blind hem stitch. Maybe it's the same thing. Now I appliqué the back side down. It's just as invisible, but it's easier to do. The thread is hidden in the quilt batting instead of in the binding. Otherwise, it's the same thing.

Okay, PQ.  Are you up to doing a tutorial?  I've never heard of a blind ladder stitch.  I use a slightly longer applique stitch for bindings, and I agree it's pretty invisible.
