Here are the two little cross quilts that I made from Candy's hand dyed indigo blue fabrics...
Indigo Blue Cross Quilt No. 1
15" x 15"
16" x 17"
As you can see, there is no visible binding on either quilt.
That's because each was finished using a facing method, which basically is where you sew a binding on, but roll it all the way to the backside, so no binding is visible on the front.
This allows the quilting to go all the way to the perimeter and creates a nice smooth edge. I feel that it can give a small quilt a more professional, artful look and presentation.
There are various ways to face a quilt and you can find lots of tutorials on-line, some more complicated then others. In my next post I will show you how I like to do it,
which is super-duper easy!
See you then!
