Fancy Little Mug Rugs from Solid Stars from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I have a fun little gift project to share today!



I made three little mug rugs, using
some 6 1/2" star blocks that I made
a short long time ago. 

{Ahem...time flies.}

You can read more about the Moda Sweetwater solid bundle
of fabrics that I used, in this post.




I had such fun stitching up these solid blocks!
I used one of them on the back of a little table runner,


Hmmm...solid blocks do tend to show "mistakes", 
don't they?
I'm pretty sure I've ...

Slow Stitching Sunday: To Hell With Elmer's Glue All Over My Iron. Back to My Old-School Binding Methods from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Because a Needle and Thread Feel Good, and Sticky Glue All Over a Hot Iron Feels Bad
Well, folks -- I had lofty intentions of binding this quilt entirely by machine yesterday using one or more of the glue basted binding tutorials that are floating around out there.  As you can see, I abandoned that adventure, carried my not-quite-finished quilt out to the deck, and started stitching the binding down to the back by hand with my trusty size 11 Bohin applique needle and Aurifil Mako 50/2 cotton thread.  *AHHHH!!*


Look How It Glows In the Late Afternoon Sun!

My best tips for all machine binding from The Crafty Quilter

As promised, I’m sharing my best tips for sewing all machine binding onto your quilts.  This is a great way to add binding that is fast, efficient and strong.  And this means more time to start something new!

For the past few years, I have tried different methods of adding binding all by machine.  I’ve finally come up with a system that works for me, and I think you’ll like it too.  It produces the best-looking finish for an all machine binding technique.  I’ll share my tips and my process with you.  (I’m assuming you ...

Sew My Stash 2 from Carol Lyles Shaw

I am committed to Sew My Stash 2018!

Here’s the latest sew my stash finish in my trio of quilts for a niece and her family who recently bought their first house.

For a tutorial on how I made this quilt, go HERE.

Finish #3 in this trio of gifts.  It’s a very large lap quilt–finished at 68 x 80–so it’s big enough for 2 to snuggle under. I’ll be washing it this weekend and mailing it off on Monday.

I pieced a binding from leftover fabric. I attached it with the machine binding ...

Double Magic Binding from Quilt Doodle Doodles

While out doing my trunk show at different quilt groups this summer, I noticed that everyone was drawn to my machine binding on a few of my quilts. They all had my decorative binding on them. It's what I call my Double Magic Binding. I discovered the technique a few years ago, it's a fun way to bind a quilt.  I can't take credit for coming up with the idea, there are several tutorials out there describing the same or similar process... but I want to share this wonderful technique with you again. It's a nifty ...

Machine Bind Your Quilts Like a Pro from Goer

I'm so pleased to be joining Sam Hunter for her 2017 Back to School Blog Hop for Sewists. This is Day 27 on the 32 day hop so there is a ton to check out! If you're just tuning in, be sure to visit the entire lineup from the links at the end of this post.

When I began quilting, I learned to make bias binding and to finish by hand. Now, my preferred method is to attach the binding completely by machine. Most often, by the time I'm at the binding stage I'm just ready ...
