Lavender Chic Binding

I thought for sure I'd have this quilt done today.  What a time to run out of thread!  I'll show you the binding now for, and the rest of the quilt when its complete.  I'm  using the same decorative stitch on the binding, as I did on the seams.  Here's a look at the back side. 
Its kinda nice when you're working on a quilt with no deadline.  You can take time to  experiment.  The decorative stitch looks pretty, catches any minor deviations in binding width, and eliminates the need for hand stitching.  Heck - why didn't I think of this sooner?  :)

I like that stitch.

I have been trying out that type stitch on bindings for runners. I really have trouble getting a machine-sewn binding to look good. I am just not very skilled with it. I intend to keep trying because it is so much faster than hand sewing!
