    What a great idea! I know on a few quilts at the shop we've sewn jumbo ric-rac along w/ the binding for a lil somethin' EXTRA! Thanks for sharing!

    I just read an article about using piping with your binding on the Fons and Porter website. Sounds like a lot of work but for a comforter on a bed in lieu of a bedspread, it might be just the finishing touch. http://www.fonsandporter.com//aspx/Fons ... spx?id=494

    It really depends on the quilt as to what binding style I will use. The Cotton Blossoms quilt had a lot going on, so I blended the binding in. If the center makes a real statement, anything but blending would really draw away from it. But if it is an overall plain block design or needing something extra after the border, I love stripes and polka dots for the binding.

    congrats Niki!!! You're gonna love that charm pack!!

    Binding...well since I just bound my first quilt...and I used white...which was also the background color so it blends..I would have to say that I'm leaning towards using something different on the binding than being matchy matchy....I think the contrast would be more interesting...

    oh...and Sultry...I have some...and let me just say YUMMY
