Tuesday Tutorial: Susie's Magic Binding

There is now a video of this technique. Go to this post to watch the video. I met Susie at Quilting in the Pines last weekend. She drives a pumpkin orange (or Tangerine Tango, the color of the year!) Audi TT. And she demonstrated the coolest completely-machine-sewn binding I've ever seen! Here's how: 1. For this technique, you will need a main binding color and an accent color.
