  • Let’s Get Our Fabrics Organized in 2017!

    OK, quilters, let’s be honest with ourselves: no matter the size, we all have a bit of a fabric stash laying around the house. If you’re anything like me, it isn’t just laying around the house: I have fabric and rulers in the trunk of my car! When meeting up with a friend recently, she mentioned how she was looking for a vintage fabric for a quilt she was making. I told her to meet me at my car. She gave me a weird look but when I opened my trunk, she understood! While storing fabric in the car might make for funny stories, it doesn’t make for effective quilting.…

  • Keep Your Sewing Room Organized with These 5 Tools

    In my experience, keeping fabric and quilting supplies organized can be difficult. Even though I have a sewing space and plenty of storage, I, personally, have struggled for years to keep everything in order and ready to use.

    How to Bind a Quilt: Double-layer Quilt Binding

    There are many ways to bind a quilt, and every quilter develops a preference. Your choice may depend on the type of quilt you are making: a quilt that will be used for warmth or on a bed (and that will be washed) will need a sturdy quilt binding, whereas you can get away with whipstitching the binding on a decorative wall quilt. Aesthetics also play a role on how to bind a quilt. Do you want a squared-off quilt binding with mitered corners or rounded corners? A “pillowcase” edge with topstitching, a hand-sewn finish with invisible stitches, or a machine-stitched binding with matching or contrasting thread? Or maybe you…
