In the recent September 2012 issue of American Quilter magazine, there was an article on "Faux Piped Binding" by Trisha Chubbs. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it.
|You are going to be making a two piece binding.|
|Then sew the binding and the piping strips together|
|Press the seams toward the piping side.|
|Fold the binding in half and press. (front)|
|Back of the folded binding.|
|Attach the binding to the BACK of your quilt.|
|Fold the binding over to the front and stitch in the ditch.|
|You will probably see the stitching on the back, but I really love the effect of the piping.|
