Quilted "Fat Quarter" Pillows

...and a new video tutorial:  Machine Binding!

My friend Barb's husband always accompanies her to the fabric store.  NO, he doesn't go to look over her shoulder and curb her spending, he's very encouraging and supportive of her quilting creativity.  He even knows what a fat quarter is.  A big guy with a cheerful nature, he always greets the ladies in quilt shops with:

You just have to laugh.... Mine are fine, by the way.

In fact, I got to play with some fabulous new fat quarters that weren't even on the shelves yet...  (I ♥ the gals at Riley Blake Designs!)  YES, I'm a FAN!  Bright, fresh fabrics; fun embellishments... Don't you love these "Dainty Blossoms?"  They make me smile!  Adorable!  The perfect addition to my newly cleaned up and organized Sewing Room!   See the full TUTORIAL <<

Join Cindy and me on this video for a review of Machine Binding (mitered corners, plus that mysterious final joined seam for a continuous binding) and adding Embellishments.
