    I have made a cute embroidered baby quilt for my GD. My DD wants "silky" binding. I want to leave it as wide as possible. I left extra batting and backing around the edge for this purpose. My problem is that I am not sure how I should apply it. Should I sew it on the front and turn under 1/4" on the back and hand stitch it or sew it on the back and bring it to the front and zig zag or fancy stitch it down. Any advice would really be appreciated. :)

    I've used it on a baby blanket. It turns out so nice. I stitched it on the back and then brought it around and, using my widest zig-zag, I zz'd it onto the front. It turned out great!

    the way this stuff is made you can just slip your sandwich in between the layers and pin well and sew on the front with a decorative stitch and your done.
    BTW, very cute quilt

    I believe that is the way they are done when you purchase a ready made one. Or you could put a small decorative stitch on it.

    I would sew it on the back and flip it over to the front with a zig zag to finish it. Beautiful quilt, Grandma!

    Does DD want it narrow or wide? Some kids want the wider band so they can rub it against their face. I would find this out and then decide how to apply it :D:D:D
