One of my recent blogposts was all about how to face your quilt, rather than adding a binding to it. If you haven’t yet read that post, you can find it here.
This is such a great method for wall hangings as it uses up excess binding strips and small pieces of scrap fabric. It also avoids those pesky mitred corners (if you love mitring your binding corners, I’m sorry). It allows the border or background fabric to flow right to the edge of the project without the “stop” that the binding can cause.
Lots of quilters loved this technique and some of them had some questions. As the edges of the facing strips aren’t finished, they wondered if they might fray when washed. Others wanted to know if this technique would work for large bed-sized quilts. To answer all of their questions, I created another video and you can watch it by clicking on the image below.
Have you ever tried this technique on one of your quilt projects? Let me know how that worked for you in the Comments below.
