I'm ready to put the binding on the Owl in the Round table topper. I've never done binding for a shape like this and am hoping for some help. I thought I'd cut a bias binding, 2" wide and folded. I know how to do 45 degree angles but what about this one? I Googled but everything was for scalloped edges (and said not to cut the scallop until the binding was attached) and this is just slightly scalloped.

Can I ease the binding, should I cut it narrower? There are three layers; backing, thin batting and top.

Kathy, the pattern is Owls in the Round and is available as a download. The program is free with your first pattern purchase at www.myeqboutique.com

It's a stand alone program and you don't need EQ to use it. It's kind of nice because you can print the patterns at any size. This one is for a 30" round and I made it that size.  My ONLY complaint with the pattern was it wanted to print 20 pages of pattern pieces. There are 8 owls, all using the same pattern. But the pattern wanted to print all pieces for all 8 owls. That was 18 eyes, 18 wings, 18 outer eyes etc. I had to spend some time deleting the extra pieces before printing.

A bias binding will work fine on this.  I did a similiar runner once and used a 2 1/2 in bias binding.  It is really no different when sewing than the regular binding.  Just ease into the dips.   Beautiful owls.
