After trying every conceivable binding, I finally settled on no binding. It was so labor-intensive and the results were not awesome. So I switched gears and decided to use a zig-zagged edge, which is just about my favorite thing in the world anyway. The results are more me than any binding ever would have been, I think. Now I'm dreaming of a serger to really lock down those edges!
Here's the newest piece. I like that, by offsetting the squares, I get the illusion of more pattern. It also saves me fussing over those perfect corners.
Unfortunately, Josie is not impressed by any of it.
