On my miniature quilts, I always use single-thickness binding because it has less bulk than the double-fold binding often used on full-size quilts. For one-of-a-kind binding, I use leftover quilt scraps. I cut strip ends on a 45° angle, stitch the strips together, press seams open, and trim for a seamless look.
