Binding a Quilt

I came across Sharon Schamber's video on binding a quilt quite a while ago and didn't take much notice of it.
Today, I had to bind a quilt and thought I would give it a go, seeing that so many of my long arm friends in the States had tried it and loved the result.

I AM A CONVERT! I will never go back to my old method. This is fantastic - but you HAVE to follow the steps.

We can't get Elmers school glue here so I tried a Bostick washout glue stick. Not quite as good as the Elmers Glue in that Elmers Glue is liquid and thus easier to apply but the glue stick worked.
