Quilt With Us

Awhile ago we had a discussion on alternative finishing options for quilts with irregular edges - like hex edges.  We discussed knife edge (or envelope) finishing, regular bindings, etc.  I came across this video that might give another option.  I'd not seen this technique before. 

Marci (video instructor) calls this a "facing" finish.

Thanks for sharing that tutorial!  What a great looking finish to end up with.

That was a fascinating tutorial!  Thank you for posting it.  I know one other quilter who always faces her quilts (she thinks binding is bulky), and that is Kitty Pippin, who does exquisite oriental quilts.  She is over 90 years old now, and had a quilt that won BOS at Padukah!  Her daughter is Sylvia Pippin, who is pretty famous for teaching her appliqued quilts.  Sylvia binds in the usual method, and I was privileged to watch the most amusing back-and-forth conversation about finishing an edge between mother and daughter at a workshop.  Kitty is all of about 4ft. 11"!
