Susie’s Magic Binding

Have you ever added a flange to your quilt before you added the binding? Well, one of my quilt buddies told me about magic binding. She said, she would show me on Tuesday, but I couldn’t wait. I went home and Googled it; only to find out how GREAT this magic binding technique is. I’m the shortcut Queen, so I’m always looking for a new technique or method that would make my quilting quick and easy. And to my SURPRISE this technique is so easy to do. Poof! you have a flange and binding all in one and it’s machine sewn.

Stitch and Flip Tutorial

Once again, I’m adding a technique to my blog that will make your quilting life easy. I’m always looking for methods that make piecing quilt blocks quick, easy, and effortless. I came across a stitch and flip tutorial demonstrated by Diane Harris (Quilter) from National Quilters’ Circle. She explains why you should add stitch and flip to your quilting skills, so check out the video. Remember no matter how skilled you are. You can always learn something new. Enjoy!
