Just a quick post  regarding a fast technique I use on small wall quilts. Take 2 squares of fabric ( these were 3 1/2 inches) and iron in half diagonally. Sew the raw edges even when you are sewing on the binding. The edges will be covered when the binding is sewn down by hand or machine. Insert a dowel and hang on  small brad nails or I have even used push pins if they will go into your wall. This works for quilts that are not too large. This one is 15 inches wide. If you don't have a wood dowel and  the piece is small, I have used a chop stick. Just a thought to share!

Terrific method and technique. Will have to try it on the next small quilt that comes out of my UFO stack.
