Adding Flanges

I really like adding a chiseled edge to my quilts.  I’ve been adding piping to several of my quilts and I do like it.  However, I’ve been wanting to just put a bit of color and separation in there without the bulk of piping.  I am so glad that my friend, Tina, posted a tutorial about adding flanges.  As you look at her pictures, you can see how just that little bit of “separation” makes her blocks “pop.”  You can find her tutorial here: http://backporchquiltworks.blogspot.com/2012/08/adding-flange.html.    I am now going to have to try this!  I love the way it looks so much better than with piping!

  1. Thanks for cross-posting my little flange tutorial. I’ve gone a little flange-happy and keep seeing all kinds of new places I might add them. I haven’t tried piping yet… may have to go there next.
