Many quilters I know (including myself) find the binding bitter-sweet. In some ways it is wonderful knowing that once complete your project is done. In other ways making and attaching the binding fabric is quite fiddly and time-consuming. Heather, from The Sewing Loft has created a picture tutorial “Quilt Binding Made Simple”.
I am starting to get quite a lot of scraps from my quilt and sewing projects. What to do with them? Make a scrap quilt. Sometimes I find scrap quilts are “messy” looking. This Scrap Jar Star quilt from Gigi’s Thimble is stunning and doesn’t look very scrappy at all. Visit her blog for a FREE tutorial on creating this lovely piece of art (and scrap eater!!).
