So, do you know what I did with this edging? Yes, it is a standard double fold binding, but before stitching it on I inserted a bit of rick rack to give the bound edge just a bit of embellishment. Cute, huh?
This next one is just as simple. After the quilt was completely bound using the same fabric as the last border, I went back and added an embroidered stem stitch in red all the way around it.
There. Now you have four different ways to finish off a quilt that is not the same old binding.
