That Pop of Color is a Lovely Finish!
Add a final decorative touch to your quilt with a flanged binding. That little strip of color can be just the accent your quilt needs for a beautiful finish.
The binding is done entirely by machine and looks great on both sides. Mitered corners give it a polished look, while a heavier weight thread becomes part of the design.
This process also creates a sturdy binding that will hold up to lots of wear and tear. Plus, it’s easier to do than it may seem at first glance. There are a number of steps to work through, but it’s a simple process. After you’ve created one flanged binding, you’re sure to go on to do several more.
Karen from Redbird Quilt Co. has created an excellent tutorial. Just follow the steps for a beautifully finished quilt.
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!
