A New Fave, Some Finishes and a Giveaway!

A friend told me about a binding technique quite a while ago…but at the time, I was too preoccupied w/my current projects to pay it any attention.  Fast Forward 2 years and I was visiting another friend who was showing me piles of quilts she’d made over the years and they were all finished w/a gorgeous, professional looking binding. She referred to it as Susie’s Magic Binding. But it’s also known as Faux Piped Binding and it is AMAZING!  I prefer the FPB tutorial because it’s a PDF and Trisha explains the effects of pressing the seam of your binding and accent fabric one way or the other. 
For a “stuffed” piped look, press your seam toward the accent fabric.
For a “flat” flange look, press your seam toward the binding fabric
I am totally hooked on this technique and have finished several quilts w/it!  I’ve always preferred machine binding, however my quilts have never looked better than w/this technique.  Thanks Trisha!

  1. So many beautiful quilts in this post, Zenia! I love the binding technique you've used. Thanks for sharing the tip about how pressing the seam can change up the look. I never tried pressing toward the accent fabric before.
