I've not seen this one before! A Cathedral rolled binding?

That's pretty! I may have to try it on my next miniatures.

That's actually pretty clever! Looks like a fancy picture frame!

Just when I thought there was nothing new under the sun. So pretty!

I like it! I'm not sure I would ever do it, but I do think it's pretty and really adds a lot of interest to the border. By the time I get to the border I'm usually ready to be done with a quilt - I don't mind doing the borders but not sure I want to take this much time with them.

I like it, too. And, I want to do it at least once, on something small.

Interesting and plan on playing with it. Wonder if it could be done with a narrower strip?TFS

RE: I know you need another way to do binding...

You'd almost have to plan on making your outside border wider, just to accommodate this technique.

4" strip folded in 1/2 = 2" wide

this sewn to the back side w/ 1/4" seam allowance would use 1/4" = 1 3/4"

then folding the binding over the raw edges would take another 1/4" = 1 1/2" left

1 1/2" (or slightly less) would flip to the front

Depending on how deep you want your scallops to be, I'd think you could shrink down to 1" (taking 1" total off the original 4" binding) and still have enough to roll into the scallop.

Something to think about trying! I do like how she's quilted the wide binding, making it more of a decorative feature rather than just slapped on.

I was thinking it would look pretty with beads sewn at the points. (See Kate, you need to try it!)

I think it would work with a narrower strip, too, like Jennifer said.

I saw that looking for FMQing tips. At first I was thinking like Kate, but it would look good on small items. Still looks like too much time lol!!!

Oh, man, just what I needed. Now I gotta try it.

I think I will try it with the narrower strip. I think I might like a feather stitch to hold it down, decorative but less work.

That is really CUTE! I think I'll have to try that technique!
Thanks a bunch!
