Machine Sewing Your Quilt Binding

21 Nov

I have been looking for an easier way to put my quilt binding on.  I have arthritis in my hands, trying to hold a needle and push it through the fabric can be very painful.  I watched this video and tried it, it came out really nice, now I am sold on this method.  It may not always be the ideal way to do it, especially if you are entering a quilt contest, or it is going to someone really special.  I highly recommend trying it.  It is a personal preference.

Quick and Easy Holiday Quilts

18 Nov

I love working with panels when I need to do something quick.  I have had this panel for a while, and wanted to make a friend a birthday gift.   I started it yesterday, now I am ready to put the back on it and quilt it.

THIS IS AWESOME!

I was dumbstruck when I watched this.  Making the Flying Geese Block is probably the least favorite thing for most quilters.  This makes it so easy, and it actually makes the quilt block look  three dimensional.  I can’t wait to try it.

The picture to the right, is not part of the video.  I put it on here for those of you that might not know what Flying Geese are.

Best Quilt Binding Video

26 Oct

I just bumped into this.  I have been wanting to learn how to miter my corners when I put a binding on my quilts.  This video is easy to understand, and really gives detailed information.  For any of you wondering the same thing, I think you will find this very helpful.

Make 4 Flying Geese Units at one time

21 Oct

This method is by far my most favorite way to make the Flying Geese Unit.  Some quilters like using the Quilt In A Day method, but for those do not have the rulers, this is perfect.

Happy Quilting

Fabric Calculator

21 Oct

Yesterday I purchased a fabric calculator.  I can’t believe I have not done this sooner.  It saves an enormous amount time and frustration trying to figure out yardage for quilts, blocks, sashing, binding.  Wow what a great thing to have.  It is very user friendly, came with great instructions both written and DVD.

I recommend this for any quilter, especially for those of you that have trouble with math.  I had a 50% off coupon for JoAnn’s, lucked out that they were not already on sale, I got a good price.

Happy Quilting!
