Binding Tutorial

I bind all my quilts by machine, and NO, I don't think it's cheating. ;o) For a long time I've tried to talk people who still bind by hand into doing it this way. Ok, hand-binding has it's place. But for people like me who need to finish a quilt fast, it's perfect. I can see how binding by hand may at some point in my life seem relaxing. However, with 3 small children, a business, etc., etc., now is not that time.

So one day I was binding a quilt and decided to take pictures along the way so that I could post a tutorial about it. Unfortunately I still haven't found the time to write and edit that tutorial. Maybe some day. In the mean time....

My good friend over at Moose on the Porch Quilts just posted a tutorial for binding your quilts by machine- it's fantabulous! Go check it out. If I was as good at computers as I am with quilting i would've figured out a good way to post a pic and the link right here- but I'm not. But please, go check it out.

I will say- it's not exactly the way I do mine- but after reading I'm going to try her way. Who knows, maybe I'll switch! ;o)

P.S.- Today I am sad. Check back tomorrow to find out why and to enter a chance to win a FANTASTIC new giveaway!

I know why your sad. So sorry. Sorry I didn't make it to your little get together last night. I didn't get home from work until 6:30 and I was just to tired. Did you have fun? I'm sure you did, I hope it brighten your day up. Stop in the shop if you have time and check out the bakeshop.

Thanks for posting this link! I am a beginning quilter and have felt rather lost when it comes to binding, so this is very helpful!
