Hi just a quick question,

Instead of using binding on quilting has anyone used the thick fabric ribbon, im not thinking of using it on quilts but i thought it might be fun on placemats, coasters that kind of thing.

ribbon like this.

What do you think???

lots of love

Francesxx

Frances I use ribbon as embellishments but I don't think using it as binding on small project would be to bad .I might give it a shot on some of my mug rugs and see how it works.  Barbara

Hi Frances

 

I would be a little bit worried about the ribbon wearing out too quickly.  Not saying you shouldn't try it, of course!  That's just what would concern me.

Finally got to sew today, after being out of town for 3 weeks and then a week back.  Here is the baby quilt top that I whipped up tonight for the grandbaby due the end of July.

Cute quilt....I'm a real Mickey and Minnie fan.  I need to whip up another baby blanket as I've got a grandbaby coming in December if everything goes right this time.  She miscarried last year.

Frances I did use very wide ribbon on a baby quilt as a binding.  it seems to work okay . and the parents washed it often .  I had forgotten that .  Barbara

You can probably use a woven edge grosgrain or satin ribbon.  Make sure that it is a woven edge ribbon so that the edges don't fray when it is washed.
