As I was working on one of my new patterns, for the line I will present this summer, I decided to try some of the bindings and finishes that I have on my website page BINDING/FINISHING to show you how they look. On the piece below I used a strip of fabric that I added fusible web to and cut 3/4" wide. I semi-folded it to give it a slight crease (before removing paper back) and then added it to the edge and ironed. You can also measure in 1/4" with a ruler or draw a line 1/4" in with white pencil. I've tried both. This method shared by Laura Wasilowski and posted on my webpage called BINDING/FINISHING works and I really like it. I then decided to add a little texture and color so I tried Laura's suggestion of adding a decorative stitch. My machine doesn't have the exact blanket stitch she used but I liked this one just as well. You can find that link as well on my webpage BINDING/FINISHING here. Can't wait to try more tips!
