First, I cut and prepped this, for a top that is finished but the not yet quilted:
I store prepared bindings in a small tote bag. Before starting to sew, I spread large quilts on my bed and pre-check that no seams will land in the corners of the quilt. It is easy to carry the tote and quilt and pins to my bed--I pin the binding in place and IF a seam will be at or near a corner, I back up the starting point until that problem is avoided. This take a few minutes but is well worth it to not get to a corner with a seam and have to make a major fix:
Another quilt needed to be bound--with "sky" fabric on 3 sides, and "ground" fabric on the bottom:
Then I tackled Ruffled Roses, a beast of a quilt but one I am thrilled is done:
I have Binding Tutorial here. It also discusses other topics about finishing a quilt, like creating a permanent label.
Lots of time will now be spent hand-stitching the Ruffled Roses binding in place. It takes 2-3 hours to create the binding, trim the quilt edges, and attach the binding and sleeve by machine. It takes 10-12 hours for me to hand-stitch the binding in place on a queen-size quilt. While I enjoy this process, it does take time and care. This quilt is taking a trip to Denver in August so has to be ready for that.
There is ONE more queen-size quilt that needs binding before Denver--secret sewing I can't show you but here is the border, back and binding--I think you will like it...
