    these stars were from a swap yrs ago. one quilter did them all. I made them into a wall hanging.
    and you can't see it but i did faux binding. black binding with a bit of purple peeking out.
    i didn't know what i was doing so i folded my end binding over the cut edge of the first binding and cut 2 1/2 inches. it worked anyway. mitered the ending binding.

    I've done that binding method also. I find it harder for some reason. Your quilt is very nice.

    the faux binding (purple that was showing) on top was skinny. if i do this again,i will alter the measurements and make the faux binding to show a bit wider.
