|Two different colors of binding on top and bottom|
My solution was to piece the binding on the sides with both colors. I measured the length that I wanted to be green, and added 2" to this measurement. This was pieced on the diagonal with the blue binding fabric, as shown in the picture below. The two sides were pieced opposite of each other to keep the diagonal slanting down towards the quilt. This little quilt didn't have continuous binding since I wanted to position the color transition in the right spot. I extended the green binding 1" from the corner spot where I started sewing.
Then I sewed the corner seams. I marked the corner seams first with a chalk marker. It's a little triangle that I later matched up with the other side to get that perfect corner seam.

One of my favorite tools is That Purple Thang. It's got a not-too-sharp point and a square end that are perfect for pushing out those corners.

I hope you like it still and can use this technique on one of your quilts!
