In A Bind


I was cutting bias binding strips for a quilt several weeks ago and decided to try to match the striped pattern so that it wouldn't be so obvious where the seams were. Not perfect, but close enough. Do I really need to spend my time doing this? Probably not, but I know it would bug me if I didn't do it.

You did a great job. i usually try to match stripes following the length of the stripe instead of cutting across it, its even less noticeable especially with irregular stripes like yours

You had to do it if it would bug you...I totally understand. It will look great! :O)

My type A personality is right there with you... good job! My aunts always try to tell me "if it looks good as you're galloping by on a horse it's good enough" but I, like you, try to do as good a match as I can.
