    I sew a decorative stitch under the front part of the binding and it catch's part of it and looks cute

    Ooooo...Ahhhhh! I love both of them. I'm a bit partial to the pink one, though. They're beautiful.

    The binding closeups are in the pictures category, and it shows how the decorative stitches work, love doing my bindings that way now.

    That is a really great pattern.. I need something simple for my guild BOM...I think they could handle that and it turns out really nice. Is there a particular pattern name or did you just make up the components and if so what measurements did you use. TIA

    Jeannie, if you go to the pictures and look up better pictures of decorative bindings, I have pictures and explanations. If you have anymore questions after looking at those just let me know. Thanks for your interest, Diane
