As a member of a charity quilt group, we are always looking for ways to bind our quilted projects. This book gives me all the ways and some that are new to me. I have always known about self-binding, pillow casing and the “normal” or double fold French binding. This book also tells how to do two sided (a different color on each side), scrappy binding, irregular edge binding and flange binding. I am intrigued with the flange binding and plan to use it on the next quilt. This is like the French binding I do but there are two different sized pieces sewn together on the long edge. Then you fold it in half (again like the French binding). Sewn to the back and turned to the front so both colors show. You can even machine stitch in the ditch with this binding. It makes me think of piping when it is all done. Very pretty. As I am a very visual person, this is definitely my type of book as there are LOTS of graphics. Now I will know for sure I am doing it right. I can’t wait to share this information with my charity quilt gals. "I received a free or discounted product in exchange for providing an unbiased review."
