Ah, don't you just love putting the binding on a quilt? Away go all those raw edges, making everything neat and tiny. The beautiful part is that you have finished the quilt and you are high with the success of a job well done. Well, in any case, DONE.
To complete this project, I chose to add a folded fabric strip before stitching the binding to the front of the quilt. It adds a bit color and extra drama to quilt. Since this quilt top did not have a solid outer border, this extra fabric strip gives weight to the edge.
Now what will I do today? A new project or jump right in to work on another from the UFO pile? Oh yes, I do have to add a label on this quilt, then I am off and running.
Do you have a favorite binding technique or an interesting finish that you can share?
