Fancy Finishes! Faux-Piped Binding

This month begins a series of guest posts at Cutting Corners as I begin my fourth year of monthly "Sewing/Quilting Basics" tutorials for Riley Blake Designs.

This new series will focus on edge finishes and "Alternate Endings" to use on quilts or other quilted projects, other than a standard binding. The kickoff tutorial is one I've had a lot of fun with - faux-piped binding.

This machine-binding technique is one of my favorite quick fancy finishes - great for pillows, mug-rugs, placemats, kids' quilts, and I especially like it on my laminate UFO-to-Go portable design wall.

Click the button below to go directly to the tutorial, loaded with lots of tips for applying not only the faux piped binding, but any regular old binding too.
