    Hi Everyone,

    I'm ready to bind this little table runner I've recently made, and am a bit stymied as to how to bind this darlin'. I'm not having much luck finding what I'm looking for on the net, and I don't have the proper binding 'tool'.

    I have 2.25" folded binding all prepared and ready to go. In fact, I already started sewing it down one side of my table runner. I came to the corner, not the usual 90 angle that I've done, and went "Hmm". I sure would appreciate some help with this.

    Thanks so much.

    I've saved a very detailed tutorial which should answer your question.
    Hope this helps.

    Cut your binding to go past the corner by about 2". Use your ruler, most have 45' angles drawn on them, this should help you to get the angle you need.

    I didn't see the previous post, just follow the tutorial.

    Oh my goodness! I just made the very same runner (of course diff. fabrics) for a swap. I goofed up the FMQing so am redoing that part, but in the meantime, I too was wondering how to do the binding. Thanks for asking and for the tip.

    How about that? :lol: I'm really glad I asked then. Most generally, there's more than one of us wondering how to do something. Best of luck with finishing yours. I do hope you'll post a pic when you're done. :D

    I've done this table runner myself 3 times. I sew to the center of the point of the angle...remove the runner from the machine...flip the binding up as you normally would making the right angle to the left of the point of the corner ...now the tricky part... normally the binding is brought down and lined up with the corner and you continue sewing. with this angle you bring down the binding and line it up with the right side of the quilt. The pleat at the angled corner is not as deep as the regular corner. I hope you can understand what I mean. I have some binding I can show you. I'll take photos tomorrow and post them. I have one of these runners in progress so it will be easy to show you. Anne

    Thanks,

    I'll be interested to see how your technique might differ from the tutorial offered above. I just got my binding sewn on per those instructions. Now to flip it over and see if it worked. :D

    Thank you so much. I really needed the visuals in the tutorial. Hubby kinda folded the angle the way he thought it should go, but I needed to know HOW that happened. Sharing helps us all!
