Auditioning Piping and Binding Fabrics
Recently, I spent a day with Ricky Tims. I was actually with hundreds of others, but boy Ricky sure knew how to make it seems it was "all about me". Though I have done piping a bazillion times over the years for everything from clothing to curtains by machine, any time I did piping for quilting there was usually handwork involved. I have never really been happy with my machine results for my quilts.
Yesterday, I spent time watching his video (again) and a few others' techniques just to compare and have decided to try Ricky's method on my granddaughter's I Spy quilt.
I have decided to go with a pink patterned binding and deep purple striped piping.
