So... I was really hoping to have pictures of the leftover's quilt to show you this week... but it rained this weekend when I was planning on getting pictures. And even I am not dedicated enough to make my husband stand out in the rain while I get pictures. :) I'm hoping to have them up next week!
Today I'm going to share a quick tip about matching stripes while you are making bias strips or bias tape. It really makes the seams less noticeable on a quilt or clothing.
It's a simple trick... just increase the over hang, until you find a place where all the stripes line up.

Obviously, this technique is easiest when the stripes are regular and not random in color and width. But it still works with irregular stripes like this just fine. Hope this helps the next time you are making a stripy binding! Don't forget to come back on Friday for our next Handmade Confession with Sew Charmingly Quilted.
