I do these same steps with one difference..... I cut 2 1/2" binding ttrip, fold, stitch it 1/4 inch SA, wrap and glue. With the 1/4" SA you will have a 3/8" width on the back binding. When you SID from the front at 1.4" the extra 1/8" on back will allow you to catch the entire piece so you won't have gaps.
If you like a wider binding than 1/4" on front just adjust being sure to add the 1/4" to the cut binding so you have the extra 1/8" when it's folded.
hope this makes sense.

I do my binding this way but I sew it. I would think glue will come apart at some point. I just stitch in the ditch on the topside and haven't had any problems. .

Great tutorial. Never thought of using glue on the binding. Will do it today!

Julie has a great voice for this. Her speech and diction are very clear. No "ums or ah's". Directions are simple and progressive without having to fill in something that was missed. Great videos.

I am glad you showed that everyone misses an edge sometimes. I have done the glue basting before and had the same thing happen. I had to machine stitch when I was behind on binding a baby quilt. I had to do a few hand fixes, too.
