Works Great for Borders, Bindings and Backings!
Have you ever had to piece two strips of striped fabric together? The temptation is to sew them together between the stripes. That works, but the seam is often obvious.
Instead, make a nearly invisible seam by sewing the ends together diagonally. This method also has the advantage of producing less bulk in areas where you need to fold the strips, like in bindings.
Susan Flemming, from Super Mom – No Cape, explains how it’s done in the following article.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
