It is always fun to find many uses for one ruler, that way you feel like you are getting your money worth. Have a fabulous day...no sewing going on this week...maybe tomorrow...there is always tomorrow!!

I always love to hear about new products, new tools, especially rulers. I've seen several version of the binding ruler, with the first that I'm aware of from Quilter's Paradise. http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/2010/08/cutrite-bind-up-ruler-by-quilters.html

Thanks for sharing insights on this new bind up ruler from Missouri Star. Looks like a very handy tool. I like how it builds in the spacing required for both ends, before binding the two together.

Great video. I haven't seen that tool before. I'll have to look for it.

Hmmm..I have wondered about that tool, it seemed like an unnecessary expense. Now I see why I might want it. How wide a binding is it made for?

Thank you for posting this video!
i tried to help a friend with this tool and I couldn't figure it out, lol.
also, how do you load the video to the blog? I'm so un-techy

I would like to see how you sewed around the 4 corners when you attached the binding around the 4 sides before finishing with this tool.

Neat little gadget!

Hey, that's cool. I especially love how they cut the top off the sewn braids off and use that to square off the bottom! Not sure I would have thought of that. . .

Barb, somehow I missed this you tube and I subscribe to them. This might be a worthwhile tool to purchase. Thanks for sharing it.

I saw that video. I love that ruler. I always end up squaring up my binding at the end rather than putting it on the diagonal.

I have it and it is great for the 2.5" binding. I do mine at 2.25" and I always need to make adjustments.

Hmmm, I purchased a tool to do the braid over the weekend. Drat, I didn't even think about using the binding tool (ruler) that I already had.

Thanks for the url for the pdf from united notions - it will be helpful .

That looks amazingly easy to do! I always struggle to get my binding to fit right.

I have that tool...But never use it. It never occurred to me to use it for a friendship braid!! Very clever!!
