Okay friends, I need some input here. I need to determine where I should make my cut for the opening of my tree skirt. There are 2 different options that are shown in the diagram below. I'm leaning toward option 1 because of the quilting that is done and because it's a shorter distance, but option 2 goes along the seams of the individual blocks. I've never cut into the middle of a project before so I'm not sure if that matters or not.
I've also never done a biased binding before so that should be interesting. Since just the circle opening needs to be on the bias, can I cut that portion just on the bias and then have the rest of the binding be standard? Or will that cause problems of rippling once I wash it? Just trying to figure out how to maximize cutting my binding strips.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
