    Can anyone help me w/ how to bind a Grandmother's Flower Garden. Sides of the quilt are points of the hexagons and top and bottom of the quilt are sides of hexagons w/ a rectangle in between them. Very odd, but I told a lady I would try to bind it for her. So I am asking for HELP from anyone.
    Thanks.

    you could do a facing Marci Baker does a really good tutorial here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwPe_84GBfY

    Or here Marci shows how to bind inside corners which a GFG has many of those. lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VGNcDoI-R8

    Here is Marci's tutorial on how to do "odd" ouside angles... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vci9-li3aYU

    Here is a picture tute for doing an actual binding like Marci's if you watch the tutorial on youtube and then use the pictures from this site for step by step refresher its pretty much the same!... http://www.thatgirlthatquilt.com/201...-tutorial.html

    Good luck!
