    Tumbler Binding Questions

    I have my tumbler quilter quilted and am considering binding it with the full tumbler edge, rather than cutting it straight.
    Any tips for this?

    Also, what's your favourite method for making bias binding?

    Is there any reason why I can't machine sew this binding on? I mean, sew it onto the back and then bring it to the front and machine sew it down. Or will that be too hard with all the corners?

    Thanks, Watson

    It will be a bit tricky but similar to doing scallop edges. I might opt for facing the quilt to preserve the tumbler edge but hand stitch the facings to the backing.

    These videos will help with the angles.


    A second that might give you ideas.


    In fact, even more tutorials here for you.


    We used her methods in our LQS class to bind a Christmas tree project with different angles. I refer to them frequently. Good luck deciding on the finish!

    I did it on my Kaufman Cascades quilt. Here's a link. https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...e-t272072.html
    I preserved the whole rhomboid-or tumbler-on the top and bottom (or sides since the thing was square). I used a bias binding and sewed to the front, then hand stitched to the back. The angles were pretty easy to navigate around. It took a couple of 1st's at the local fairs a couple of years ago.

    Bias binding--there are a gazillion ways of doing it but I used this method https://so-sew-easy.com/making-conti...-binding-tape/

    Have fun!
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Bias is your friend! This is why I straighten the edge.
    Always be true to yourself!
