    Cathedral Window rolled type binding

    When I posted my ‘Pinklet’ quilt yesterday I received several requests for a tutorial on the technique I used for my binding. I had some quilting practice pieces leftover from another quilt. I had used it to play with stitch length and tension so it’s not very pretty but it worked for this purpose. Come to think of it, I will probably use it as a large mug rug at my desk. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Nice Tutorial Sis. I'll definitely use this on a quilt. I have my eye on a pattern that I think it would work well on. This was a great idea.

    Thanks so much for the Tute!! I immediately went to look at the quilt I'm binding now, it has a border print with a scalloped edge and I thought this would be perfect for it. Still might be although I think my border print comes a tad close to the edge to get the right effect. I might play with it. If not ... the next quilt top that needs to be quilted would look lovely with this treatment.

    Thanks again!! I am truly grateful for you - and everyone else on QB that has shared their ideas so freely.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
