It’s often used in simple arm hole (armscye) bindings. Most frequently, of course, we see it on quilts. So skip the prepackaged stuff and make your own!

    I didn’t realize it was her last name; I thought it was a reference to the herb. I thought it was very cute and clever.
    I’m going to try this today. I have a king size quilt in my UFO pile. All that’s left to do is bind it and I’m dreading the thought of the huge quilt taking so much piddly time. This might take away a lot of those piddly hours. Thank you for posting.
