    I'm scared to try curves, especially on a machine and not by hand. Love yours, though, and it did go together very well!

    I think that looks very good.

    For that usage, unless you want to work on your binding skills, I would do what's called a 'birthing', pillowcase or envelope style. You put down the batting, then the backing, then put the top face down on top, pin well, saw most of the way around. you will need to clip the curves, then turn it right side out, press, close the opening you left with a hemstitch, then quilt.

    I do need to work on my binding skills (never having done it before...) but also, I want to cover the treadle top more completely. It's been sitting up there (during the week, my sewing room is Hubby's office) and the more I look at it, the more I think I'm going to finish the edge with half-axes to square it off, then bind it.

    It'll be a learning process, no matter what I do! :-D

    I've always called this an Apple Core. I tried it once and have to go back to it. Not my fav' but I will feel very accomplished if I finish. Are you hand piecing or by machine? This pattern is a gem for those who love to hand piece. Abit more involved for machine piecing that curve. Good luck. How big is it going to be?
