  1. love the magazine! Very upbeat & easy to understand. Suggestion:why not have contributors expand on the history of the traditional pattern (if they have used one) ie when it was first recorded,where and how they have varied it. Also, the traditional and alternative name of the pattern would be nice to know too as we’ll as where the pattern may have originated. Really enjoyed the binding tutorial!

  2. Love the tips on binding. Especially how to merge the two ends and making the corners! Now I’m ready to take on my next binding. Thank you.

  3. Question. Ebony used a small ruler for the diagonal edges on the binding. What brand, size, and where should I order them? Thanks!

  4. Loved these episodes with Ebony – learned a lot – I always machine my bindings but I usually use a decorative stich but now will try the zigzag – I like that better.

  8. These three videos have changed the way I look at binding a quilt! Mary and Ebony made things so simple I just know my next quilt will have that professional binding look! Thanks girls and keep up the good work.

  10. Thank you so much! You’ve saved my quilt! I tried hand turning my last one, and it totally had gnarly corners (not from hand turning, but from poor pinning/sewing/general rookie-ism) I just finished a cray-cray nine patch, and it’s so much better! Thanks soo much for these videos!

  11. I just finished watching the three-part series on binding for the second time (taking notes!) and I’m ready to try this technique. As a beginner I have some pretty gnarly corners on the quilts I’ve made so far, following directions from a book. I think this technique will actually be easier once I master it and will certainly look better. Thanks so much Quilty for all the good information.
    p.s. I love the videos, so fun!

  12. Thank you for this tutorial. I would like to know where I can purchase the little ruler that Ebony Love uses when she is actually making the binding and making the diagonal line to connect or sew the binding strips together.
