How to attach bias ends of binding

Since my old camera has gone to the camera cemetery, I bought myself a new camera.  Yes, I had it on my Christmas wish list.  In fact, I had the same camera in 3 different colors on my wish list (at highest priority), hoping someone would get me ANY of them.  But, no.  I don’t know if the THREE cameras threw them or what.  It was a decent price!  Really!

Anyhow, to make a long story short,  I used my new camera to video tape myself sewing on the binding of one of my UFOs (UnFinished Objects) today.   You might remember this little quilt (Letter Challenge).  One of my quilt guilds was having a quilt challenge, and I wasn’t happy with the colors.  Well, I didn’t get it done in time for “the reveal” of all the challenge quilts (I was too sick of it by then and still didn’t like the way it turned out), but I did finally finish it.  I did a crappy job of quilting it, but at this point, it’s done.  So, why not show you how I add my binding?  I tried a new procedure, which I will share with you soon.  For now, though, let me show you this video on YouTube.  When I downloaded my videos, they saved into QuickTime, which I don’t normally use.  So, I sent this one to YouTube so we could all see it.  I warn you, though, I tried to zoom the camera in so you could see what I was doing.  Unfortunately, there are a couple of spots where the camera is too close, because I’m moving things around, and you can’t see what I’m doing… you can only hear me.  I had no help with the video taping, so I couldn’t see that it needed to be zoomed back out.  Anyhow, I hope you learn something from this video, even if it’s just to zoom out a bit when you are taping.  Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPwrQKo1cHU&feature=youtu.be to watch it.
