I know that I need to use bias cut binding to get it to go around nicely. Done.

I know how to mitre corners and make that last join in a square/rectangle quilt, using my binding tool. (Leave an opening, 8-10 inches of tails etc...)

But I have a 15 inch round topper that I want to bind. Normally when you make that last join you are using a 45 degree angle (more or less) to join the tails. Is it different when you have a circle?

Can't find anything on the internet so any info you can share or point me to on the 'net is greatly appreciated. Same with any TNT tips or your experience.

Thanks!

That's how I would do it. :)

I finally found this tutorial.

It is a bit hard to see/follow but the diagrams she uses seems to indicate that it is not a 45 degree angle like one would use in a square or rectangular quilt. (One with no curved edges.)

Posting this tute in case any one else wants some help with this.

My first quilt I did rounded edges and used a 45 degree angle. No problems at all. When I have more time, I'll take a look at the video. :)

45% Same as for a straight edge.

Okay... must be my "inexperience jitters" getting the better of me!

Probably once I get in there and try it, it might be more clear to me. Hope so!
