I found a blog where she shows how to do machine binding with a flat felt seam foot. The site is called A Woman A Day and she has a detailed account of how to apply binding in this manner. I too am not crazy about doing bindings and a nice, faster method would be wonderful for most of the quilts I make.
Sew Kind of Wonderful has a pattern for a lovely poinsettia that is worth checking out. Just look at that pretty teal and white runner and then go down the page a bit and she has the pdf for the pattern. Really really pretty.
The soon to be New Year always brings to mind the dreaded word--organization. My sewing room looks like a bomb fell in it right now and it definitely needs some organizing. Moda has some tips for doing a little spiffying up of the room. Good luck...Moda Bake Shop also has a tutorial for a quick stocking stuffer, hair scrunchies. Love them. These were made by Karin of Cascade Quilts. She has a lot of nice quilts and also a tutorial for making pinwheels out of charm squares. Enjoy these posts and have a nice day. Diana
