Bindings and RibbonsJuly 25, 2006
I played around with making a piped binding today. It went a lot smoother than I thought it would. I had never made piping before, let alone trying to add it to a binding. I used the suggestions from a book by Debra Wagner called Traditional Quilts, Today’s Techniques. I only made a straight sample piece today. Over the next few days I will be attempting the corners around a whole quilt. 🙂
I felt badly that the kid’s quilt only won one ribbon when there were 6 of them that worked so hard on it. So I got some ribbon and some pins from the show and made each a little ribbon. They were super easy to make and I’m hoping will have a certain WOW factor for the kids.
