Flanged Binding - Tuesday, Nov 7 This instructive workshop will give you the choice of two different styles of two fabrics with which to bind your finished quilt. The first, with instructions from Missouri Star Quilt's Ginny's YouTube, is about 3/4" wide. Working with those measurements, Sandra worked out a more standard 3/8" binding, which will not cut off the corners of any points you've worked so hard to keep. You will learn the cutting, sewing, pressing and finishing of the binding, with help on the corners and the turning to end up with perfect corners. Sandra will also mention the method used to make the multi-color contrast border on the store example. If anybody wants the instructions on this 4-patch batik quilt in the store, she'd be glad to give a hand-out about it. This is a very attractive way to finish a quilt AND, mind you, it's all done by MACHINE, no hand hemming!
