SUSIE'S MAGIC BINDING. Oh, my heck! This is so cool! Susie creates the piping effect with a flange that's cleverly constructed in the binding in one step. The whole thing is done on the machine by stitching in the ditch of the piping. Gotta try it!

There is now a video of this technique. Go to this post to watch the video. I met Susie at Quilting in the Pines last weekend. She drives a pumpkin orange (or Tangerine Tango, the color of the year!) Audi TT. And she demonstrated the coolest completely-machine-sewn binding I've ever seen! Here's how: 1. For this technique, you will need a main binding color and an accent color. Of course, you can use the same color for both -- but why bother with this technique, then? 2. Trim the excess…

You have probably seen a tutorial or two doing binding this way. I did a previous blog post on a look alike binding trick where you tuck a flange or ric rack into the seam. Today's method is a self-flanged binding where everything is sewn as one piece. It is perfect for a little pop of color to frame your quilt, table runner or placemats… anything that needs a little extra something :) Just think how cute a gold shimmer flange would be peeking out of the binding on your holid
