My big Strapping Bag, upsized from pattern in Small Stash Sewing: 24 Projects Using Designer Fat Quarters

Dusty’s New Coat – he only likes to sneak in pictures (see above), not great at posing (see below)!

Lucy’s Jewels quilt – loved being able to use patches cut by my mom to make this one for Project Night Night.  I even got a little fancy with the stitching, and did some free motion hearts.  I did not like the satin binding I used – very slippery and hard to keep in place.

Here’s my version of the table set up recommended by Marguerita McManus – scroll down for the YouTube video and links.

Binding Tutorials on You Tube:

Missouri Quilt Co   – already tried this one, and it made a big difference for me!  It’s all in the thumb action!
Straight (non-mitered) by Thimble Arts–  Good for beginners
Bonnie K. Hunter’s site is awesome, with lots of great downloads and freebies: www.quiltville.com
