Makes a beautiful finish.....hummmm....I think I already said that. So regardless of which finish Nonnie4 has on this quilt, it is a good one to know how to do. :-)

I think this is right. I was at my sister's over labor day weekend and asked her how she did the cool binding on her table runner. She said she added a narrow border, birthed it, and stitched in the ditch to look like a binding. The only difference is, she didn't stitch along the outside edge.

You might want to watch this video. It looks exactly like the binding above
except that your swap partner topstitched the facing instead of doing it
by hand. And like someone mentioned, it was done in reverse, i.e. stitched
to the back and brought to the front.

Wow! ! So glad I found you all. I PM'd the person that sent me the mug rug and told her that I have created quite a stir and rousing conversation about her project. I asked her if she wanted to chime in and shed some light on how she did it to help solve the mystery and then you all might be able to put a name to the method. I have really enjoyed seeing your responses.

I agree,there is no binding on back, just stitching.

For those of you who sew clothing this is very obvious.


The pink fabric is single folded bias tape. Home made. The sides of the fabric are folded almost to the middle of the fabric.




The right side of the bias tape is attached to the back of the quilt sandwich then stitched within the 1/4 inch seem allowance.. All of the bias is then folded onto the front ironed down and stitched on top at both the edges.


The first stitch line will be hidden between the facing and the quilt.


Google how to apply single bias tape

Looking forward to the answer from the one who made this.

In my experience, it is. I started out making almost all of my projects from my Debbie Mumm books and this is the way the books say to do the binding. It is not easy to get a nice corner and i much prefer regular binding and mitered corners.
