Well it was nice to receive a couple of shout-outs from fellow bloggers last week - from my buddy Katie of Katie Mae Quilts, who talked about using left-over hst's, and mentioned how much she liked how I used them in "Spiraled".
And from Amanda from Material Girl, who shared a bunch of helpful quilting and sewing tips, including my tutorial for matched binding.
Since these are two of my favorite quilts from this year, it's nice to know others are remembering them fondly. Thanks, Katie and Amanda!
And I keep meaning to report back about trying out "The Binding Tool"! I've used it on my last two quilts, and I like it - with one caveat: I've needed to watch Missouri Star Quilt Company's video both times. Which is fine by me - in the end, this tool really has helped me finish binding easily with very little bulk.
