Your explanation for finishing the binding where it meets makes the most sense of anything I've seen. I'm going to give that a try!

 

thanks.

I'm a beginning quilter and I have a double wedding ring quilt top my Great-Grand-Mother pieced.  For years I've been putting off starting to quilt it because I don't know how to bind the curved edges.  Any ideas or instructions on how to bind all those inner points between the mid point of the "rings" that make up the scalloped edge?  I'm not sure what the correct terms are for the descriptions but I need help!  Is it possible to extend a border around the scalloped edge and then bind a straight edge?  Which brings another question..how would I attach a border to the scalloped edge?  I'm fair at sewing but not very experienced  at quilting so "easy" is necessary please.  Any help or ideas would be appreciated!!  I can follow (slowly) your bias binding instructions if that's a gauge of my ability, or lack thereof. 

 

This is my first post, ever, so I hope it's alright for me to put this here!

Yes it is perfectly ok to put your question here.   I would leave the scalloped edges and use a bias binding.   If you cut your bias strips and sew them together you can adjust it around the scallops and inner points.  I am sorry to say that I am not good at explaining how to do this but hopefully someone else can help.

pam it would be the same amount or more work to put fabric behind the scallop to have a straight edge to bind.   you can also leave the binding off.   fold the front and the back of the quilt in towards each other so they are even on the edge and slip stitch all the way around.   gini

I have learned to bind in a sewing class, but I practiced by making place mats, and the more practice the better.  Simply stitch to the end using your normal straight stitch, and go to the end.  Stitch backward about an inch leaving your needle down.  Lift your foot, and turn your binding up  folding it upward, and then fold back down allowing about an inch.  Lay it over your sticking and stitch the corner and continue on.  Your binding when folder up should shaped like a backward L.  When being stitched in upsidedown L.

Thank you to all of you for your input.  The bias binding is the way I want to go, but the inner points are the places I'm a little worried about.  I think I'll make a practice piece and give it a try before I get started on the actual quilt.  The idea of no binding makes sense too...hadn't thought of that.  Thanks also for the very nice welcome..I LOVE this site!!

Welcome,Pam.  I was intimidated by this type of binding in the beginning, too.  It's easier than it sounds and I'm sure you'll do fine with the bias binding with just a little practice.

Thanks- I have always had trouble with miters/  one question: Do both sides of the corner show the miter?
