    Adding borders QAYG - My tip for today

    This is the second time I'm making a QAYG quilt. I've always had to struggle
    to add borders this way.
    http://www.thequiltingedge.com/2011/...g-borders.html
    When I pin the first border, everything is fine. When I pin the second border
    everything seems to look wonky. Well, no more.
    I just received my Roxanne glue-baste-it (which has a very fine needle tip)
    and it's a dream to use because you get a very fine drizzle. So I used my
    latest gadget to add the borders and what a difference it made.
    I only use one pin to centre the borders and then glue, press, done.
    Can't get easier than that. Just thought I'd share.

    Looks like I will try that method. I never liked the bulk when the batting was sewn in the seam. Thanks.

    I don't think I could quilt without Roxanne! Bindings...she always helps...matching points for curves...nothing better when used with her buddies, the wonder clips. They keep things steady while she dries and then gets out of the way for her to do her job when I sew.
