    flange binding

    we play a game called CLR at our quilt guild. The prize is fabric from all quilters. These are the fabrics I won. We are suppose to make something with them... I didn't really like it unfinished... then saw a "flange video" and thought this would be a good project to experiment with... I like the way it turned out. Flange binding is definitely fussy and I can't say this is my best effort, hope to get better at it.

    Cute quilt! The flange binding is the only machine binding I like.

    the mitered corners are definitely more challenging with the flange binding

    The flange in the binding adds a real nice touch to your quilt.

    glue basting helps a lot! it takes a little longer, but still quicker than hand stitching it.

    I have done this binding twice. It takes practice. Looks good.

    Beautiful Spring quilt. I love the flange binding also. It is a little fussier to do but worth it.

    Your binding looks great... It is better than having to hand stitch all of the binding on.

    I use flange binding for all my quilts now. It was a little fussy in the beginning, but keep going and it will be your go-to binding all the time. I absolutely love how easy it is to sew on, and the detail that it adds to the quilt.

    I often use flange binding. It gives a great finish to the quilt.

    I have also used it around a center portion--like you have--just the purple -- folded--like a small flange--it helps the center portion or even a panel have a little more definition.
