    Will faux flange binding work with odd angles?

    I have a table runner ready to bind-thought I would try a faux flange binding. The runner has "pointy" ends-the blocks were set on point. Will this binding work with "corners" that are not 90 degree angles? I have googled around, but not coming up with any info. Thank you!

    If you can do the angles well on regular binding , it works the same. Here's a picture of it on my table topper.Name:  image.jpg

    It should work but I would first try it on a normal 4 side quilt. Make a quick table runner or placemat. Then when you have done one, then it will be easier to handle the unusual angles.

    Tartan, OOPS! Who would have thought???? I might have to retire that topper, as pretty as it is!
    Thanks for the info though.....I will give it a try on some scraps I think....I have made toppers similar to yours with those angles, and I actually thought it was kind of fun to bind those crazy angles!

    ​Sew pretty! That faux flange gives just the right bit of pizazz to the edge. I really like the flange binding for table toppers and runners as it gives a stiffer edge which helps them lay flat.

    The flange does look great. It really adds to the binding & the quilt. Very nice!
