Curved Binding Tip

We all love a pretty curved border and I'll be putting on another curved binding when my latest quilt gets back from my favorite LAQ. I sure wish I knew this tip years ago when I did my first curved binding!


I just watched this quick tutorial from iquilt and HAD to share with you. It looks amazing and I'll let you know how it goes when I try this for myself. Enjoy and have a Quilty day.

June 13th is National Sewing Machine Day

I don't know about you, but my sewing machine is a very important part of my creative life. It's almost like having another child. Just as I can tell by simply looking at my child's face or listening to the timbre of his voice that something is not right, so can I tell by the slightest sound or vibration that my beloved machine is in need of some TLC.

So, no matter what brand or how old your machine is...give it a hug today for all that precious machine means to you and all that it does for you. And by all means, have a happy National Sewing Machine Day everyone!
