    Well I did have a productive weekend! I finished this table topper late last night and washed it. I used the Avignon fabric line by Moda, a charm pack & 1 yd for outter border, the inner border & backing was from my stash.
    On another thread discussing binding, I mentioned I sometimes use an old method of backing/binding and that is what I did on this table topper.
    I'm not the best photographer.

    I like that. It's so bright and cheerful. I also use the backing/binding method on small projects.

    Thanks! Yes the backing/binding method is an old method. I've seen antique quilts with that method and even bed quilts. I think it's perfect for smaller projects.

    It's fun and easy...I did use 1 fabric from leftovers that I cut into 2 blocks (dark blue with yellow birds). It's amazing what you can do with 1 charm pack! I do have a couple of leftovers that I'll make into coasters.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Hey Sharon!
    There are many ways to do binding. 'The old method' I am referring to is using the backing as your binding, just bring it around to the front. Yes, you'll have to cut it and then press the 1/4 inch hem, pin in place and sew. You can even miter it. I've seen old quilts that had this method of backing/binding. It's all one piece. It works well for smaller projects, but I've seen it on an old bed quilt before as well. I've been asked this question before and am pondering doing a tutorial on it.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna
