Piping Adds a Lot

I attended the HMQS in Salt Lake City a few weeks ago with some quilting friends.  We attended a class taught by Carmen Geddes learning how to add piping to the edge of binding.  Carmen is a fun and informative teacher and we were all so glad we went.

Pictured is an example of the technique that was made by one of my friends for an upcoming wedding gift.  She is a beautiful piecer and so conscientious.

The piping adds so much character to the binding that we agreed it will be tempting to add to to all of our quilts in the future.   And the best part is its not hard!
