Binding Crossed Canoes

This is the quilt that has been a UFO for 30 years. I just couldn't finish it by hand. I have finally quilted it by machine, and was working on applying the binding last night when I thought it might be useful for someone else to see the new way I am handling the length of binding. I read somewhere to wrap the binding around an empty bath tissue roll and let it sit in your lap as you sew. The lap thing didn't work for me, but slipping it over my thread holder worked like a dream.
