Tuesday's Tile is Coming Up Roses

Quilter's Tile - Red Roses
8" x 8"
Sharon V. Rotz

Your binding can greatly add to your project. The look of a double binding can raise your edge finish up to a new level.

For this quilter's tile, I added what appears to be a double binding.

But after closer inspection, it is merely a folded strip of fabric that I attached prior to binding the quilt. 

To make this, cut a 1" strip of fabric. Press in half lengthwise with wrong sides together, making a 1/2" folded strip. Attach this to the edge of the quilt with raw edges even.

Overlap the folded strips at the corners. 

Stitch the actual quilt binding onto the front of the quilt with a 1/4" seam. Fold the binding to the back of the quilt and hand stitch.
