Default Bias binding wrong

A while ago I saw a tute (here I think) where I folded a square of fabric into a triangle . Then folded that triangle into another triangle till I got a manageable size. Then cut into bias strips. Sewed the strips together making one long bias strip. I used a striped fabric. Half my stripes ran on angle from left to right and the other runs runs right to left. I don't think it was supposed to do that. Anyone know what that type of bias binding is called. I'm trying to find that tute to re-fresh how I'm supposed to do it. I'm sure I'm missing a step or two.

This was just discussed earlier today, maybe something there will help you.

I think the method I know would run stripes in different directions. Will keep watching this thread for another method.

I don't know about that method, but I think Bonnie Hunter's method would work for stripes.

It's the same problem you have with HSTs made with stripes or directional prints from squares. Half go one way, half go the other. YOu need to cut the strips individually from unjoined fabric, then be careful when you seam the strips together.

When working with stripes you have to do the fabric 1 layer at a time

I agree. Also learned this the hard way. Be sure to starch you fabric before cutting.

I have used the method that Peckish referred to for striped bias binding and it worked perfectly. It is on the McCall's quilting site. Just follow her link. It seemed almost magical to me that you can get that much binding from that size fabric square. Fun to do! Well just follow the link in the link she gave!
