    probably nylon fabric. The quilt won't get used much, but I'm starting to think that you're probably right about not using it. Thanks for the help.

    Is the graduation gown nylon?

    I don't know about the graduation gown you have to work with but I have several from my children and I don't think they would be good candidates for binding. First of all the shiny fabric is slippery and hard to work with, it frays and would not stand up to much use. Maybe the gown you have to work with is much better quality.....but I wouldn't want to put all that work into a quilt and have the binding fail...:-(

    I am making a memory quilt for a friend. She gave me two boxes of shirts to use, but I focused on the well worn t-shirts. One thing that was in there was a high school graduation robe. Could I cut this up and use it for the binding? Based on a pattern search, There should be more than enough fabric in there for the binding. Any thoughts? Pros/Cons? Thanks,

    graduation gown for binding fabric?

    Beth, I agree with the gals. I also think it will look a lot better if you don't use it. It is going to give a pretty cheap looking job when you are done. I don't know if it would help to stabilize the gown, but that won't help the slipperiness and still not look as rich as you'd like, plus it is going to cost more.
