So for those who who asked how I made this reversible binding, I will try to show and explain what I do.
Cut enough strips of both colors (front & back) to fit the circumference of your quilt. Cut the front color 1" wide and 1.5" for the back color.
Next fold the 1.5" piece in half with raw edges together.
Lay this folded piece on top of the 1" front strip, with right sides together and sew them together with a 1/4" seam allowance.
I used dark thread here so you could see the sewing line better. Typically I match my thread to the fabric colors.

Now take this "newly made binding" - all 400" here
and sew it to the front of your quilt in the usual way. Starting in the middle of one side of quilt, place the right side of the 1" strip to the front of the quilt, raw edges even with each other. The folded piece (tan in pic) is pushed out of the way to the left of the 1" strip (red stripe) and sew with a 1/4" seam allowance.
When you come to the corner, use your same technique as if it were one piece of fabric. Stop 1/4" from corner back tack a stitch or two, cut thread and take it out of machine; turn quilt and fold binding up away from quilt and back down even with the raw edge of quilt edge. This should form a 45 degree angle next to the quilt corner. This forms a mitered corner on the front of quilt.
Starting at the top, continue sewing 1/4" seam allowance down the next side as usual. As you come to each corner, the technique is the same.
Continue down next side
Here's the finished binding on the quilt from the front.
And from the back.
I hope this tutorial helps you if you decide to make a reversible binding. This was my first attempt at making a tutorial like this, so if you have any questions, please let me know.
