Two Sided Binding w/ Tutorial

I found this great dot fabric for the back of Patience's quilt and had plenty left for the binding.  But I don't really like to bind with the same fabric as the back...boring, even if it is big colorful dots.  So I came up with a simple way to create a two sided binding. 

This binding is made similar to a standard binding with a few extra steps.

I would love to hear feedback on these instructions.  You may want to try it out on a sample before binding a large quilt.

This tutorial assumes you have done a standard 3/8” binding before. If you have not, a great reference for a standard binding can be found on  specifically

Here is the finished quilt. I used Circle Around pattern and added a fun hawaiin print border I picked up from Beyond the Reef Fabrics.  I machine quilted with brightly colored variegated thread.
Happy Quilting
