At the beginning of the month, we announced the AQS March Binding Challenge Giveaway. It’s a four week challenge and giveaway. For every quilt bound and submitted, entrants get their name put in the pot. We draw a random winner each Tuesday of the challenge, empty the pot, and start again. This week, we’re announcing the second winner and sharing tips for binding angles.
The winner of the second week giveaway is Debbie Morse!
Debbie won a Sasher Set perfect for helping with bindings!

When binding our Hexagon Placemats we ran into some odd angles for binding. Use these tips to help you with your angle binding.
To create a mitered corner binding on the 120 degree angle, sew the binding over the first side stopping a quarter inch from the corner.
Fold the binding back on itself until the strip is straight to the next side. Notice how the binding is folded continuing in a straight line from the next edge to be bound.
Maintaining that fold, bring the binding over itself to lay over the next side. Secure the corner folds with a pin or clip.
Use this trick for all outward angles.
