I had a foot square piece with a straight horizon line where I wanted the binding to match the quilt colors.
- First, I measured the length of the sky and the sea and added about 8 inches to each measurement.
- I then cut 2 inch strips of the sky and sea fabric to those lengths and sewed them together with a simple straight seam.
- I folded the strip in half lengthwise and ironed it so I had one long continuous strip that was one inch wide.
|Aligning strip with horizon line|
|Sky half sewn|
|sea half se|
I opened the ends of the binding and pinned the right sides together. (You need to fold your quilt top a bit to be able to do this.)
All that remains is to complete sewing the 1/4" seam around the quilt and then fold over the binding to hem the back.
If you have any questions, please ask!
