As I continue to postpone my larger wall hanging project, I made this mini wall hanging with some piggy shapes I sketched. It didn’t turn out exactly how I imagined it in my mind, but happy it turned out okay after many alterations and additions (i.e.: some frustration fits).
Binding: I have always bound with the single fold method and struggled with making the border looking uniform (most likely a result of my uneven ironing!) This time I tried the double fold method and wow did that make a difference. It was so much easier to iron a strip of fabric in half than ironing each edge to center then in half again.
I used a tutorial I found online: http://www.sew4home.com/tips-resources/sewing-tips-tricks/complete-step-step-binding-quilts-throws
The written steps and pictures were so clear, made sense and worked exactly as they were explained. It was so easy to follow and my binding turned out better than it ever has (not saying there isn’t room for improvement of course :) On that note, any binding tips anyone wants to share are truly appreciated :)
