I cut long strips of the width of fabric on the crosswise straight grain in the width I wanted which was 2 1/4". I used the fabrics that I used on the quilt. I joined the strips with 1/4" seam allowances to make a striped binding set. You can press the seam allowances open or to one side.
I cut bias strips from the binding sets in the width I need for the quilt.
I joined the strips to make a continuous bias strip.
I sewed the binding onto the quilt using a 1/4" seam allowance.
I turned the binding over the edge of the quilt to the back. I hand-stitched the binding to the backing fabric making sure I covered the binding stitching line.
This was the first time that I have made this type of binding. It turned out better than I had expected. So try something new that you have never done. You will be pleasantly surprised.
