    For those that have been following along ... my OBW is all stitched and now back into one piece again.

    The points will be chopped off and there'll be no borders. Binding and Backing will both be in the Virgin Fabric ... and possibly a piping insert? or ruffle? .... or if anyone has any ideas, I'm open to suggestions.

    The Virgin Fabric

    This OBW is much calmer and softer than the many lovely vibrant ones. The photo colour is not as well represented here, as it is in the virgin fabric shown below.

    I haven't worked with piping for years and am somewhat nervous of it.
    MamaBear ... What size and type of cording do you use?
    and where do you buy yours? Fabricland? Lens?

    I love pastels. Very beautiful. I can't wait to get working on one. I have two different fabrics and not sure which one to go with.

    The only cording/piping I have used was on throw pillows and Christmas stockings and they were fairly thick (about the size of your little finger). I have found Len's to have more colour selection than what was at Fabricland. The Fabricland in Stratford though is now called a home decor center and has improved their inventory on their trims, etc.
    There was a posting here where a member made flange as part of their binding. It was a flat flange, not like cording but it give a unique look. I will see if I can find it. I should have bookmarked it at the time because I thought it was a nice idea to dress-up a quilt edge.

    Yes, that might be a tad too big ... though I know you can get one that is kind of satin-like, twisted like a rope, 1/4" max. I've seen it but never paid much attention not having any need.

    Thanks for the link ... I had looked at it before, as it was part of the previous group posted. I've done that before for wall hangings instead of a teeny tiny border strip.
