I’ve used Susie’s Magic Binding before, and I’ll use it again. I love it. It takes a bit more fabric than traditional binding and a bit longer to make, but once it’s attached to the quilt, it can be stitched down very quickly by machine.
This quilt is 65″ x 80″, so I would need 20″ of fabric with a traditional binding (I cut mine 2-1/2″ wide). Using Susie’s Magic Binding, I needed 26″ of fabric – 14″ of the accent fabric and 12″ of the main fabric. But, it only took 30 minutes to stitch it down – primarily because I don’t have to pin it except for the corners.
Next up the coordinating pillowcase (it’s cut) and the label.
