I'm piecing together my second quilt, basically pieced hexegons with tumbling box flowers. Anyways, I'm nearing the end and thinking about the binding. I was first thinking cutting the edges straight. Now i'm wondering if i can leave it as is and bind the jagged edge. This is what they kinda looks like; 2 sides _/-\_/-\_/-\_/-\_, and other 2 sides /\/\/\/\/\/\/\.
So questions. If i leave as is, is the binding technique the same. And will the binding lay flat around all the curves?
Thanks for your help. Also open to suggestions.
You guys are very funny. It was rather late when i was sewing the last pieces on, and thought i would get the question out of my head before going to sleep. I'm still a little sleepy, but was so happy to see replies I wanted to post a pic for you guys. I don't have my camera right now so i took a pic with the cell.
sorry so small i couldn't get the image to post right so i had to post link.
I am planning to cut binding fabric on the bias. When i was planning on doing straight edges, I was going to do a thicker binding 1 1/2" to 2", but i think if its all wonky edge it should be thinner. What do you think?
I'm not even sure if this is a specific style of quilt. I bought a couple template stamps from stamps by kate, at the long beach quilt show, and came up with this. It's going to be a lap quilt for my grandma, i got this great I love grandma flannel fabric for the back, which is good so she'll remember i made it for her, maybe. But anyways i like the idea of fallowing the edge as is, I think it will give a lot of visual interest. I'm not scared to try, i just need a little direction, or suggestions. You all are so nice thank you.
