You will need two different colors for the binding strips
You cut the outer edge 1 3/8 you cut the flange peice 1 5/8 (inches)
Then sew them just like you would normal binding in one long strip ( short side ...to short side right

Cut your 2 squares the height of your finished block plus 1/2 " - so, 2 1/4" in your case. Cut the rectangle the finished width plus 1/2" - so 4" in your case.
So you need to cut two 2 1/4" squares of your background colour, and one 2 1/4 x 4" rectangle of your goose colour.

It answered some questions for me and I've watched & read alot about longarm tension.

If you are fairly decent at quilting feathers (FMQ, freehand, not with a longarm pattern) would you PLEASE post pics of your feather quilting here? I need some inspiration! And apparently, lots more practice.

I have recently pulled my Cathedral Window back out. Life happens and other projects took over my time. My goal is to finish this before I allow myself to start another project. Having a "Fold/Iron" marathon until all needed to finish is complete, then I will go from there. With this concept, I am hoping it will feel like I am moving faster, lol. Is there anyone else working on a CW at the moment?
Kate makes a beautiful stitch and is extremely easy to treadle. But, Lordy is she noisy!! When compared to a National VS and early White VS, the shuttle is a rattle trap. As a result, I am not sewing with it anymore.

I think that top one looks like an old Wilcox and Gibbs, but I never worked on them when I was in the shop-they were just too far and few for me.
Thanks, I thought the top one was a W & G but have never seen one with a motor.
