You will need two different colors for the binding strips
You cut the outer edge 1 3/8 you cut the flange peice 1 5/8 (inches)

Then sew them just like you would normal binding in one long strip ( short side ...to short side right sides together)
Then you sew them together to create your 2.5 inch binding
Sew them together on the long sides right sides together

2 different strips

    Go to my website thequiltinmum.com and look at my photos page. The first picture shows how this binding finishes. It makes a great accent on your quilt.
