    Thanks to you I finished my neighbours daughter's quilt in time to give it to her for her 8th birtday today.
    Although I still have to practice to get the SID right on the back I love this method.

    I learned to do this but to cut 2" and 1 1/2". It worked perfect for me, who hates binding. I might have to give your measurements a try when I work up the nerve to bind again. Thanks for the show and tell. I love these!

    I prefer to do handstitching on the binding as well. But, this is interesting, I may have to give it a try! Thanks for tute!

    This might be the answer to a problem I just ran into. I've been using up some scrap strips in mug rugs and other small projects but don't have any scrap strips wide enough for binding but I think this idea using 2 narrower strips will work. Thanks for the idea because I didn't want to introduce any more fabrics to my scraps.
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.

    I did this on a king size quilt and I did not have enough fabric that I wanted to use to do a regular type binding. So, I made the fabric into the phlange. It came out beautifully.

    I used this flanged edge on a wall hanging for my sewing room and I LOVE it! I posted the pic on the "organization" section so you can see how it looks.

    I have practiced this numerous times and LOVE IT!! I use strips that are 2-l/4" and 1-1/2" to make the flange bigger and more noticable. THANKS SO MUCH!

    That is awesome! You get a different look while attaching the binding on the front. Very creative, I love it!

    Thanks for the nice tutorial. Our charity group at my guild has taught people to do this and it sure makes fast work out of bindings.

    I practiced this today using scraps and a practice quilting square. It worked great! I kept checking to see which strip was cut wider--it's counter intuitive, but works just like directions say. The mitering worked well, too. Thanks, Charisma, for sharing this beautiful technique. I'll use it on my next quilt!

    I have tried this previously, but was unsuccessful. I do believe that I'll give it another try. Your instructions are very clear. Thank you for sharing.

    I just did this! Loved it. I have to learn to keep my stitches straight, but that is my problem. The technique is wonderful.
