    Facing a quilted piece.

    pretend this small sample is a quilted piece you want to put a fancy edge on. Prepare the facing/frame the same size as your piece.Name:  image.jpeg

    Thanks a lot for the tutorial. I didn't know that a quilt could be finished like this.

    Here's an example of "impossible to bind? Do facing!" After trying all methods of binding, I'm so glad I asked the board and got the suggestion to face it! Tartan your method is really nice!

    This might just be the answer for my circle quilt.

    Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the tute. Now I understand why I couldn't figure it out. It starts with a flat edge and the curved edge and facing are created together. I can't wait to try this and I have a little quilt just waiting for this technique.

    Thanks again Tartan.
    peace
