    Thanks for sharing. It makes it look like you have added piping but done without the extra work piping takes!

    Sounds like a great time saver and I love the accent flange! You could even put a piece of cording in and it would look like piping. Great idea and I'll definitely use it on my next project. Thanks.

    Thank you so much for posting this technique. In the past I've included a narrow binding inside the outer binding, but did it in a separate layer of binding. This is easier, I think - why didn't I think of it?

    I also just tried a (new to me anyway) method of binding, from a tute by Sharon Schamber. Use School Glue with a tiny tip on the end of the glue bottle. The glue essentially acts like pins, so you don't need a single pin. After you put a skinny line of glue on and line up the raw edges, you press with a hot dry iron to set the glue. It just needs a few seconds and the glue is dry and holds it all together. She even uses it to join the pieces of binding together, using no pins. They are sewn after glued together. Then you pop the glued seam open, press open and trim seam allowances. It might take longer than using pins, but it's so much more accurate and no struggling with the top portion of the binding moving more than the bottom layer - even if you use a walking foot. And joining the two ends of binding is a breeze! I used this method on 6 placemats a couple days ago and it worked like a charm. You can SID on the other side or do by hand. Since these were placemats and will be washed frequently, I did the last row by machine.

    Wow, I love this board and what people are willing to share!! What a fun binding idea!! Love, love it - I'll have to try it on my next project. I wonder if you could slip some cording in the fold and make faux piping... hmm.

    Too cool!! Adds a really nice touch to plain old binding. I think it will bridge the quilt colors with the binding color/s. THANK YOU.

    I love the way you did that binding. I have a baby quilt to make and will try that method. Does look real easy.

    Wow, what a great accent to do it with two colors. I have always put binding on back and folded to the front and finished off by machine with a squiggle stitch in thread to match the binding, then it just blends right in. Of course the quilt police always tell me that is not a "legal" binding, and I don't pay attention as I give away another quilt that is finished. So I love the flange idea!! Thanks again.
