After a trek to LaCrosse Hobby Lobby, I was able to cover the buttons needed to complete this ‘swag’ border/binding treatment. I cut 4 bias fabric pieces (one for each side) that were 10” wide and the length of the side plus a couple inches. I folded each in half (wrong sides together) with a strip of poly batting running the length (maybe about 4”- 5” wide) and stitched the length, forming a tube. I applied this to the wrong side of the quilt sandwich, stitched, and flipped it to the front (covering the raw edges). At the corners, I folded the edges of one piece to the inside of the tube and inserted the other side’s tube inside. I hand gathered the corners and the points at which the buttons would be attached. Really, quite straight forward! I like it! To back-track on this project, follow the previous links beginning with my last post here.
