A Very Curvy Binding

A year or so ago I started making this quilt top.  If you look closely you can see that only part of it is quilted and there's a blue outline as to the final shape I wanted it to be.  This quilt was sample for me about doing curvy bindings.  I've done large, loose curves before without any issue.  However, I'd never done something smaller.  This quilt is about 16 inches across.

After the quilting was complete I cut out he final shape of the quilt.  I love it, but it was daunting to think about putting a strip of binding around those curves.

Here's the top with the binding all sewn on.  I cut into the points so I could "straighten" the edge when I was sewing the binding in those sections.

Come back Wednesday to see the finished product.

I hope you get to quilt today!
