    Would this work if I used a 1" for the flange or fake piping and 2" for the other binding strip? The end result is still 2.5 inch??

    I tried this today, so simple. I will probably never hand sew binding again.

    Its like framing a picture, just one layer of colored mat board is fine but add a second layer just under the wider top mat and the picture just pops.
    Thanks so much for posting this tutorial, I'm going to use this technique on the baby quilt I'm working. Chris

    I am in the process of trying that now and so far I believe that you have to be careful with the measurements so the part that shows isn't too large

    here are some pictures. My binding is uneven and I found that the sewing on the back goes on & off the binding. Also would iron the seam toward the smaller strip I think. Will have to play with this on the next quilt binding to see what I like better

    Hi!Chrisma, Thanks so much for posting this technique. Your tutorial was very clear and easy to understand. It made this baby quilt so much more interesting. I used a cloth book panel for the blocks, a Mother Goose panel.
    The only problem( and maybe this could be another tutorial) I had was doing the "stitch in ditch" as the final step. I couldn't get a even and straight line of stitching. I know it was because the border was stitched on slightly crooked and so the stitching isn't going to be straight. After a few tries, I eventually hand-stitched the flange from underneath so the stitching doesn't show.
    Just wanted to show it off! Have a Merry Christmas, Chris

    I have seen quite a few tutorials on doing the binding with 'fake piping' or flanges but the strips are all different sizes. My longarm quilter uses 1 & 2" strips. I tried the sizes you list here and LOVE them they are perfect. So much so that I bought two custom strip dies in these sizes -- I have a studio cutter and a shoulder still recovering from surgery so the less rotary for me the better. This is absolutely my method of choice for binding!

    If anyone would like binding strips cut to size please PM me!!!

    Is this technique done with the two different pieces cut on the BIAS and then attached as usual?

    Wow, can't wait to try this. Glad that it reappeared in the postings since I joined the QB after the initial post and would have missed it. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks so much. I've never thought of that before. I think this is a super method which could be utilized for certain types of quilts. I can't believe how much great info I've picked up just since I joined this board a few weeks ago.

    Great tut I have used it and find it just adds that little extra to a quilt. I will certainly be using this in the future. Many thanks for your tut.

    Very interesting and a must try for me. So sewing on edge of the other fabric will guarantee me it will on the binding on the other side (my problem). I will check this out, cause by the time I'm on the binding, I want to get it done. (guess that's what a flange is, duh)

    Charismah, I have used your Flange binding on a lot of projects. It works great and gives a really nice touch to a boring binding. Thanks for the tutorial!

    I realize you posted this tutorial some time ago but it was just brought up again in a thread today. After checking it out I felt I needed to let you know what a great tutorial this is and I will be incorporating it in my charity quilts to speed up the completion time. Since it's Thanksgiving week I'd like to extend a blessed Thanksgiving to you and your wonderful family. God Bless you and yours.
