    pieced binding and different corner

    I found this link

    http://quiltfabrication.blogspot.com...Fabrication%29

    It shows a way to do a pieced binding that sort of blends into the quilt, and a way to do the corners to extend that look
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean????

    Me neither.

    very informative, I'm not sure if I would ever complete my bindings so meticulously but I like the look it gives, so I saved the tute just in case.

    Interesting idea. I don't think I would ever use it as seams in binding are always tricky anyway. I hate it when a seams is too close to the corner for a nice mitered corner. I usually pin the binding around the quilt perimeter just to make sure no seams land at the corners.

    ...maybe for something to be entered in a show? But for a everyday bed/lap, whatever quilt I too would worry about all those seams in the binding-as that is what wears out first.......JMHO. A good idea though

    I thought this was such a great idea that I commented on the site and got a very nice response from the blog owner. How wonderful is that? I certainly wouldn't do this on a "drag around" quilt but on a wall quilt where it might be seen .... I would consider doing so. Thanks RugosaB!
