Fused, Hand Printed and Quilted Binding

My bindings are fused to the edge of the trimmed quilt.  I usually use fabric to match the quilt and when necessary, I will print the binding after it has been fused in place.  I protect the quilt with masking tape before printing the binding.  After the paint dries, I will peel away the tape and machine quilt the binding to match the quilt.  This makes the bindings pretty nearly invisible, firm, and helps my quilts hang straight.
