So how does it work? Mighty well, though, contrary to this picture, it doesn’t run on it’s own. I’m working on my pronghorn project again, which you might remember from my post about the Iron Shine Cleaning Pen. I finished with the appliqué and quilting, and have moved on to a faced binding. Faced binding looks like no binding at all from the front of a quilt, and is a very nice alternative to traditional binding. I use the Silly BooDilly tutorial because it has excellent step-by-step pictures and clear instructions. Here I am using my Hot Ruler again for the top and bottom strips, because I shudder to consider turning over and pressing a strip 1/4″ without it.
Then I pressed the strip over so you can’t see the binding from the front of the quilt.
Here’s a peek of the front and how the faced binding edge looks. I secured my appliqué by machine using clear thread.
