Nice and easy quilt binding
Linda found Susie's Magic Binding on the web just recently and I just had to give it a go.
This particular binding trick gives all the appearance of spending time making a flange, when it is just part of the way you construct the binding.
The flange is a great idea but the fact that this particular type of binding lends itself to a machine finish rather than having to hand stitch is even better. Invisible thread used as stitch in the ditch along the flange speeds up the finishing process.
Admittedly you have to spend extra time preparing the binding but the outcome makes that more than worthwhile.
I have really enjoyed completing these two quilts in this way and anticipate using it quite a few more times in my quilting life.
