Zebra Binding

I love adding small bits of "zing" to my quilts. I found a new binding idea over at the Doll Quilt Swap. I was directed to TLC Stitches, where she has posted an excellent tutorial. So I'll just show pictures, and you can check Trisha's blog for more details.

Here are my two fabrics. I want the black-and-white to provide the "zing."

Fold it in half, wrong sides together...
Ta-da! This is gonna be SO cool!
Here I am attaching it the the back of the quilt. One of the lovely things about this binding is that it is designed to be machine sewn to the front! Whee! My arthritic hands rejoice!

You can see the binding sleeve at the bottom edge.

Reveal tomorrow! Woo hoo!
