Does anyone know of a good instructional site where I can see pictures of
how to bind a quilts edges?  I'm just about ready to start binding my first
quilt.

Thank you,
Sindir

The pictures for attaching the binding are great; it doesn't have
to be bias:

Good luck!   This is NOT difficult.

Thank you so much for the sites Sandy.  The pictures are great.

I just got back from the local quilting shop here in my town.  They were
very friendly and helpful.  They told me to bring my quilt in (luckily it's
a small one) and they taught me how to do the binding.  They also figured
out for me how much fabric I would need to do the binding and then sold me a
beautiful complimenting fabric to use.  I think this quilt is going to turn
out wonderful.  I will have to get pictures and post them on my site when
it's done.
