    Cathedral Window rolled type binding

    When I posted my ‘Pinklet’ quilt yesterday I received several requests for a tutorial on the technique I used for my binding. I had some quilting practice pieces leftover from another quilt. I had used it to play with stitch length and tension so it’s not very pretty but it worked for this purpose. Come to think of it, I will probably use it as a large mug rug at my desk. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Nice Tutorial Sis. I'll definitely use this on a quilt. I have my eye on a pattern that I think it would work well on. This was a great idea.

    Thanks so much for the Tute!! I immediately went to look at the quilt I'm binding now, it has a border print with a scalloped edge and I thought this would be perfect for it. Still might be although I think my border print comes a tad close to the edge to get the right effect. I might play with it. If not ... the next quilt top that needs to be quilted would look lovely with this treatment.

    Thanks again!! I am truly grateful for you - and everyone else on QB that has shared their ideas so freely.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Most of the time the binding is turned to the front and the edge of the binding is stitched along the seam line where the binding was attached. But if you do that then the seam line would show under the scallop so how far in do you fold the binding to make the scallop and not show the seam line. Also then at the corner you have to fold it right on the seam line for the mitererd corner so again how do you get the scallop without the seam line showing. I must be very dense as I just can't figure this out.

    Do you mean on the back? In order to have it look nice on the back of the quilt the binding and backing would need to be of the same fabric because the seam will show. If the backing and binding are the same (or very similar) it will not show as much. If you are talking about the seam line showing on the front of the quilt, it doesn't show because you don't roll it back far enough for the seam to show. And remember you can make the binding a little wider of you are worried about the seam showing.

    Thank You

    I have never seen this type of border before and when I saw your Pinklet I was amazed at the border. You have made the process seem so easy while the effect looks complicated. Thanks again.

    I thank you very much for the great tute. I was studying your original photo really closely to try to figure out exactly how you did it. I did pretty good in my head and you clarified the rest. Thanks for your generosity.

    By the way!!! Can you tell us more about using crayons for coloring a block??? Do they hold up well with washing??
    Thanx for any input.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!
