Zig Zag Quilt Binding

Someone I follow on Instagram recently posted a quilt she finished off by zig zag stitching the binding on. It looked really neat, so I decided to try it on this mug rug that has been awaiting its binding for months. (Oh, the shame!)

The whole mug rug: I love how it looks with this project, but I definitely will stick with hand binding for most quilty projects. It is a very modern look and quite noticeable, so it would have to be the right fit for the quilt. I think it would be fun to use a high contrast thread sometime, for a completely different feel.
