Things Got Edgy

Sometimes life is interesting. Things can get edgy.  Thursday was an edgy type of day for me.

You see this quilt was sitting there needing to have a binding.  There was a Kaffe fabric that looked interesting in my stash so I decided to use it for the binding.
The selvedge print proclaims that it is Mirage 104.  

Since most of the print fabric in the patchwork is Kaffe fabric, I thought this would be appropriate. 

So,  cutting off an appropriate amount of fabric,  then ironing it nice and flat (not that it looks that way in the picture!)  I  proceeded to cut the binding on a bias. I confess to loving a bias cut stripe as 
binding on a quilt.  But this isn't a regular stripe so how would it work? The way 
to find that out is just to try it. 

I sewed the pieces together and then pressed it in half.  I sewed it to the front of the quilt and folded
it over the edge.  OOoooh pretty!  So I proceeded to sew it to the back. 

Now the "edgy" binding is on the EDGE of this fun, colorful, happy quilt. 
I think it adds an edgy pop of color and movement to the binding.  Next up, it will get 
the spa wash and heat treatment (machine washed and machine dried.)

Then I will do a glamour shoot when the weather permits.  

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative
