ok, so i've gotten the border on the flip flop quilt and i'm ready to quilt it. i like it, but because i've added the bright pink border (before the border you all saw), i feel i need a wider binding to offset the inside border.
i've never really known how to make a 'wider' border (i'm used to cutting 2.5" and ending up with about 3/8"). i'm thinking i want at least 3/4" to 1" border.
so i cut it wider, do i make the seam wider and stop that same width distance when i do the corners? i tried that once and it didn't seem to work.
or would i be better off just adding a small pink border and putting the binding over that in the same fabric?
hope this makes sense. you all will probably be glad when i get this project finished!
