I put on binding on a quilt and after washing a little piece of the quilt top pulled away. I really don't want to take off the binding and piece the border. It just won't look peachy.
My question/solution is would it be okay to put another binding over the existing binding making the new binding bigger? The original binding started out with a 2 1/4 inch strip. If I wanted a 1 inch binding on the front, how big to make the strip? What is the distance to sew on the new binding? And how far to stop sewing at the corner to get a perfect miter corner.
Last night I lost sleep on this quilt and so far tonight is going the same way. I do not want to have a repeat from last night after only getting two hours of sleep. At least I finished the quilt, well almost except for the flaws that developed after washing.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
