Faced Binding Tutorial

Using a faced binding can be a nice way to finish off a wall hanging or small art quilt.  A traditional binding can sometimes be 'too much' and a faced binding finishes the edge without adding anything to it.

Judy Coates Perez (who is an amazing art quilter and, if you haven't already, you should spend some time looking at her work) has generously shared a faced binding tutorial on her blog.  I have seen some other tutorials but this one is the easiest to follow in my opinion.  She has nice clear photos and well-written instructions.
