I usually secure the back of my binding by hand, but if I'm in a hurry or it's a child's quilt that will get a  lot of handling,  I use a decorative stitch from the top.  The wider stitch is more likely to catch the back and if it's not perfectly straight I doesn't show.

jerseyjude,

I've done all of my bindings by hand so far. May try a machine binding at some point. It would work great on children's quilts. I'll have to keep the wider stitch in mind.

Don't believe I've welcomed you to the site so WELCOME and enjoy!

I sew my bindings by machine most of the time.   I usually just use a straight stitch.
