Do you ever find you get to the end of a tutorial or pattern and it says something along the lines of "Finishing It Up - Baste It, Quilt It, and Bind It". I know I have written it several times at the end of my tutorials. Well, today I am adding a little more!!! I have created a 3 Part Video Series on Finishing Your Quilt!!! The first part is 10 minutes dedicated to basting your quilt, the second, 10 minutes to quilting your quilt, and the third, 15 minutes dedicated to binding your quilt!!! I hope you find these video's helpful to aid you on your quilting journey. (And if you laugh at some of my silly stumbles or tripod filming that is great too :)
BASTING YOUR QUILT
(Just remember, always smooth from the center out :)
QUILTING YOUR QUILT
(Practice makes perfect, just keep stitching :)
BINDING YOUR QUILT
(Yup, a little bit of math :)
I hope you enjoyed the videos and found some helpful information from them.
Oh, and this is the quilt I used as my demo :) Thanks again to the wonderful ladies at Sew Bee Create for their beautiful blocks!!! And if you want to see the tutorial for Spinning or Spiraling you can find it here :)
And don't worry, I haven't forgotten TNT :) This week I tried something new in the wee hours between night and day. (So I am not guaranteeing it is good :) One of these video's was a a tad too long to upload onto You Tube. So I searched around and found a program on my computer for editing movies. I actually figured our how to cut out tidbits where I rambled because I couldn't think of the right words to say and then add some words onto the screen where my big shoulder got in the way. Ya, video editing, totally TNT!!!
So what have you been up to??? Link on up!!!
