Is your sewing studio being taken over by UFOs? (I’m talking unfinished projects, not extraterrestrials.)
Quilters love to start new quilts. Finishing a quilt, however, is another story. We race through quilt top after quilt top, excited to try out new patterns and fabric combos, but when it comes time to sandwich that baby and get it quilted and bound, some of us run out of steam, and that quilt top gets tossed on the stack of “waiting to be finished” projects.
Today we’re going to show you how easy it is to bind your quilts on the sewing machine. You’ll be whipping out those puppies as fast as lightning! Click on the button below to watch the tutorial, and say goodbye to those UFOs!
I was out meandering in Sisters, Oregon last week and I happened upon a deer eating breakfast. I tried to get a photo without disturbing her, so this is the best I could do. 🙂

That’s what Open Meandering in Free Motion Quilting is all about. It just makes you feel better about life! Okay, maybe that’s a little dramatic, but it definitely adds some major options and possibilities to your free motion quilting tool belt!
