Black Stripe Binding

I'm rather obsessed with the fresh look that a black stripe binding adds to so many of the different quilts (here and here) and SewTogetherBags I've made recently.  It's my go-to binding for most projects. 
I've had been asked quite often about which stripe I use and where I buy it.
The answer is: I used 2 different stripes, and I usually buy them from (or from @auntipami on IG)
small stripe
black stripe binding
large stripe
Timeless Treasures Stripes Black/White
The smaller stripe I use is by Timeless Treasures, and you can find it numerous places online.  I usually get it (here) from (or from @auntipami on Instagram).  I buy it multiple yards at a time.   =)  It adds a bit softer contrast, while still being fresh, classic, and unexpected.
Michael Miller Clown Stripe White/Black
The larger stripe is Michael Miller Clown Stripe, and gives a more dramatic contrast and flare.   (Also bought here at
So there you go.  Now if you've been looking for some of the "famous" black stripe binding fabric, now you can get what you're looking for.
