Appreciate all/any help.

    Hello there, Gay! Are you determined to use bias binding, and by that do you mean purchased bias binding? I would encourage you to make your own using the techniques of Philomena Wiechec Durcan at http://www.celticquilts.com/ I took classes with Philomena in 1983 at Houston Quilt Market and have been in love with her process ever since. By using the bias bars she offers on her web site, you will be able to get the corners and joins to perfection. There is nothing more pleasing than a beautifully executed Celtic knot. Not as hard as it looks! See what you think, Much Love, Fondly, Robin
