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!

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.
De nada! I really enjoyed your post! I have a feeling you will like the flanges better. But, that’s just me. You may well, indeed, like the piping more.
