The good news is that I have my morphed table runners pieced, and one of them is quilted and ready for binding. I combined the Quick Table Runner from QuiltBus and the Two Seasons runner from Hancock Fabrics, adjusting the size for my antique breakfast table. (Patterns here: http://www.bomquilts.com/Free-Table-Quilt-Patterns.php )The problem now is that I'm not sure how to bind the inside corners. Are there any websites out there, like Binding for Dummies? :shock: I've seen the technique for binding inside curves (the clip and straighten thing) but I don't want to clip first and ruin these if I can do them another way. Here are the WIPs:

LOVE your runner. So cute! I haven't done any binding like that, but I bet you need to make sure you use bias binding and I bet it's much like binding curved borders - how you sort of leave a little tuck of binding at each dip in the curve. I will have to keep up with the answers you get, I'm curious myself! :)

I too, really like your table runner :D Sorry that I do not have an answer to your question other than do you live close to a quilt shop? maybe if you took it there they could help you out. I will be watching for the solution(s) too :D

You don't need bias binding unless you prefer it, but this is essentially right. Imagine or draw your 1/4" line. You will sew all the way into that corner and then pivot (you don't even need to remove the piece from the machine as you do with regular corners) and turn the corner. The excess binding forms a little tuck or pleat inside that corner.

Cathe - hey great to know! I rarely use bias binding, I'm lazy! So glad this question came up. :)

Unless I want it for a design element (like a plaid or stripe), I seldom use bias binding on tablerunners or wall quilts. I do use it when I want durability, as for a bed quilt or baby quilt, or when binding curves.

Thank you all so much! I'll give it a try this afternoon. Sounds like I was making it more complicated in my head than it needed to be, so I'm very glad I asked first!
