These eyes aren't getting any younger!
Too often, lately, I've had to use a black or dark blue binding on a quilt (love the way it frames it). Do you know this trick? Since the front and the back of the fabric is solid - you can't tell them apart - make sure you mark both ends with a yellow or white pencil.
That way, when you join your binding strips, you can place "right sides together" instead of sewing haphazardly and creating a serpentine mess!
Why does this matter? You don't want to sew 7 strips together and then discover, when pressing, that some seams face up and some don't. AARGH!
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
