  1. I have long admired the faux piping on a binding and have used it a lot myself. But never imagined it scrappy. That’s brilliant! Thanks sew much for sharing!

    What a clever idea! It sets off your quilt just perfectly, sorta scrappy but without detracting from the design. Just perfect 🙂

    It looks very professional, thank you for the tutorial will definitely be trying that method. I’ve pinned you on my home screen so I can find you quickly. Hope your arms don’t start aching with the ‘hanging’ around;)

    Thank you for sharing

    You are amazing! I have been trying to find a machine binding solution myself and I think I’ll give this a try! You know as I know, some quilts need to be done quick and machine binding is okay. Now I need to find a quilt to try this out on!

    I love it. Now I have to make a quilt like yours and try it. Thanks for a great tutorial.

    Wow! This post is just what I needed right now. I have a quilt I made in all solids and white background during the Moda Friendship hop that I need to bind this week–and this is the way I’m going to do it! This is perfect! Thank you so much for this nicely done tutorial.

    BRAVO!! Thank you for sharing the wonderful tutorial. You explained everything so clearly. I hope my results will be as good as yours when I try it.

    oh this is genius – thanks much for sharing! It looks terrific!

  18. Janis says:

    What a fantastic idea. And thanks so much for your detailed instructions. I am going to try this on my next project.

  19. I LOVE this idea so much. Perhaps I am being thick – but I can’t quite figure out how you attach your binding – I tend to sew mine to the front and then flip & hand finish on the back. I think I can still make this idea work for that too.

  20. Leslie says:

    Perfect choices! This is a technique I need to try.

  21. Jody says:

    LOVE IT!!!! 🙂 I’m thinking the little table topper Mom did would look cute done like this!…may pick your brain on what colors to use 🙂

  22. Jan says:

    Brilliant. Thanks for sharing. I only machine attach my binding, and I’m pretty good at it, but this will give me some variety when I want it.

  23. Terry says:

    Love your quilt and the binding is beautiful…thanks for the tutorial!

  24. Sara says:

    I love this quilt!! The faux binding is great too. I’ve always liked the idea of machine-stitching binding on, but i didn’t like the look on the back of the quilt. The faux piping makes machine-stitching the binding on make sense and look good too! Great tutorial. Thanks.

  25. This is a great tutorial! Just perfect for this quilt.

  26. Chanel says:

    Never seen binding like this before, I think I just fell in love! I think it is the perfect finishing touch for your quilt and I will definitely try the technique myself. Thanks for the tutorial.

  27. Sheila says:

    What a wonderful look, I will certainly try this.
