    Aussie Animals baby quilt - Flange binding

    Made this quilt for a friend's baby boy. It was a lot of fun to make.
    I tried the flange binding and LOVED how easy it was and how well
    it turned out. (I just hope baby George likes green!)
    I used green minky on the back, and since the flange was black, I
    used black thread on the top and green thread in the bobbin, so the
    stitches don't show on the back.
    The pattern is The Potato Chip Quilt.
    Thank you for looking, and for your kind comments! Merry Christmas!

    cute came out great.
    why is it called a potato chip quilt?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You can make such cute quilts with the simplest pattern when you use such terrific fabrics.

    Cute quilt! I agree with you on the flange binding. I loved doing it as well and it does add the extra interest at the edge!

    great pattern... I will have to google "flange binding" as I am not familiar with it but yours looks wonderful and really finishes the quilt nicely. Merry Christmas to you too.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Pretty quilt, and great job on your first flanged binding. I just love using this technique. It takes only a few minutes longer than sewing on a regular hand-stitch binding, but there aren't hours of hand stitiching. I also feel like they are much more secure than my hand-stitched bindings.

    You did a great job on that. The flange binding looks great, too glad it worked for you.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Love the lime green - especially the "peas" on black. Such a cute baby quilt.
