 Week Four Rules - finishing

Only one rule this week. We are finishing off your quilt art and to do that, let's use a different method of finishing off than you normally would for a quilt. Here are some options.

A standard binding with embellishments. An example of this might be adding prairie points within the binding.

An envelope binding. Check out Jennifer's blog on how to do this: No binding method

One of my favorite methods is a fold over method as you see on this postcard. You attach the binding to the back and fold over to the front. The raw edge on the front can be straight or curved.

Aquarium Postcard

I used another method which is raw edged with yarn embellishment.

Edging on quilt

The edges of the quilt are raw and I used a free-motion zigzag to attach the yarn and hold the layers together.
