I am making a baby quilt for a friend. This is my first ever quilt project and so far it is going really well.
What I would like to know is when it comes to doing the binding – is there any reason why I can’t use satin ribbon as my binding material? All the online binding instructions say to cut your binding strips from your chosen fabric. I think satin ribbon would be lovely as the binding on a baby quilt, and the advantages I see are that when you buy it is already one long continuous length (no need for cutting and joining), and it is of consistent width (sometimes my cutting can not be so accurate).
Would appreciate advice from experienced quilters, as I am puzzled why using ribbon for binding is not mentioned on any ‘how to’ websites? Is there a disadvantage that I am missing? Thanks
