    A lady came in and taught this to use a few months back at a long arm quilters meeting and I thought I would share. I am one of those people who do hand binding but when you are in a hurry and you need binding done fast..this is the way!

    You will need two different colors for the binding strips
    You cut the outer edge 1 3/8 you cut the flange peice 1 5/8 (inches)

    Then sew them just like you would normal binding in one long strip ( short side ...to short side right sides together)
    Then you sew them together to create your 2.5 inch binding
    Sew them together on the long sides right sides together

    2 different strips

    Now we are ready to sew it on our quilt! YOu apply the binding just like you would normaly....mitered corners....however you choose to meet up the ends ect....
    But you sew it on to the back of the quilt with the flange side showing...

    SO that when we flip it over on to the top of the quilt it looks like this ( front picture of quilt)

    SO when you flip the binding over and start machine stitcing it on the top of your quilt you find matching thread for the little bit of flange to kind of hide your stitches....as long as you stay on the flange it looks nice...but it is best to try to SID if you can.

    So the end result looks like this

    This is the front of the quilt

    Thanks Charisma! I've thought about doing that with my next quilt, and this gives me the push to go ahead and do it!

    Thank you somuch. This helps I can't seem to cut the binding wide enough, but I could do two smaller strips and use this method for attaching. You are an angel.

    Blessings, Ruth
