    Binding a Table Runner

    I need help binding a table runner that is not oblong, but comes to points on the ends. I am trying to use the technic used when doing a quilt, but is not working on the corner where it is straight on one side and at an angle the other side going towards the point. I have spent more time on this binding than on making the top and I have 3 more to do. Can anyone help me?

    Sorry to hear you are having problems. I only did one of these once before and my quilting buddy helped me. I just know we brought the binding up to the angle, then folded the binding (it kind of made an overlap) and that is the way I stiched it. I am sure there are other techniques. I would search on line for the Missouri Quilt videos on utube. They have a lot of videos and there may be one there that would help you. Good luck.

    There may be help on the tutorial section. Someone did an octogon, it may help.

    Thanks for the help. I have tried a couple of corners and that technique worked.. Thanks again.

    The one posted for Alicia's Attic is probably the best I have seen. Why don't the patterns for those table runners give better instructions for the binding. it is so frustrating.
