Like you, I don't pin my bias binding onto the quilt.  I just lay the binding on top and sew.  Bizarrely, I do enjoy doing the miter corners .. it's a great feeling of accomplishment.

And when I join the ends for the final seam, I *still* grin like a fool when it comes out perfectly.  Gotta love the small things.  :-)

Of course you grin!  You invented the end-of- binding process.

DD and I use it every time. Your name is legend, dear Pirate.

Ha, i could probably do that too for sewing it over to the back. On an earlier quilt i had put a few straight pins in to get me started on that. while stitching, i felt something stick me and jerked my arm backwards. didn't think much but actually got scratched from elbow to wrist by a pin!! no blood but it itched and became swollen awhile. So no pins if i can help it from now on. Careful is the word!
