        OK, do you want the edge(where the binding will attach)to be straight but the zigzags to look as they are going into it?
        If so I would cut enough tumblers from your border fabric so you can begin and end each row with one. trim the outside edges and attach the top and bottom borders. The sides will not be a one piece border but should look like it.
        Not sure if this method is really worth attemting since the top is already finished but you could try it for the next one.

          I found a tutorial on uTube called Finishing Quilt Edges Marci Baker of Alicia's Attic that you may want to try...I think I will use it to finish my tumbler quilt...I hope this helps

            I'm fairly new to quilting and still learning but what about using your tumbler template and cutting your border into tumblers like the quilt and then straight edge the border before binding

              How about cutting an extra wide straight border then appliqueing the quilt zig zag edge on top.

                claire,
                that's exactly how i want it to look, i've been wondering if an applique method is the answer; i suppose turning under all those zig/zag edges, pressing them, and possibly even using a blanket stitch - - - is that kind of what you're thinking?
                oh i'm so glad someone gets the picture in my head!!!ha!
