  4. I find it easier to sew the diagonal sem first and then cut.

  5. While you are pressing the binding, be sure to press each end at a 45 degree angle. When the binding is sewn on, you will have less bulk and no loose ends.

  6. I find it easier to place the strips at the right angle and mark from corner to corner where I am going to sew, sew the seam and then cut off the corner where Ebony cuts then sews.

  7. I still don’t know how to cut a bias strip for binding. I would have loved to see her to this with the stripped material.

  9. Thank you so much for this episode. Looking forward to the next 2! The only, teeny, tiny drawback. I feel a little dizzy with the motion of the camera…but otherwise, I LOVE it!
