    Welcome from rural Maryland. If you machine quilted your quilt you could make it like a pillowcase and just turn it right side out and stitch an inch or so from the outside edge all the way around. That makes a perfectly finished sturdy binding in a very short time. That is the way I do all of my Linus quilts as well as anything for a child that will get washed a lot. I like to use a decorative stitch even if it is only a zig zag.

    I hope you enjoy quilting as much as the rest of us. It is a very rewarding hobby.

    Thank you very much for the warm welcome. I can't believe that this one site brings together so many people from so many different places. You are all very welcoming and encouraging. It feels like "home". :)

    hi juneau, welcome from Florida. I have been here about nine months, although, my date says longer...story there.
    I too, love this board. It's got everything, and the best part is, all quilters are welcome and don't need to feel like a stranger. :D

    Welcome, for the great state of Texas. Since you are already planning the next quilt, I would say the quilting bug has bitten you. Hopefully any questions that you may have can be answered here and I'm sure that you have entered into the wonderful world of quilting.

    Hi- welcome from Midland, Michigan. the only complaint i have about this board is i spend too much time reading and replying that I'm not sewing! (Not really a complaint). Everyone here is very helpful, friendly, and encouraging. Love this board!!

    Welcome from sunny, HOT Arizona! Take a class on how to apply your bindings. They aren't that hard, once someone shows you how to do them. Join a quilting group and ask a lot of questions. Just hang in there.

    :) Hi Jeana,

    I'm very new here. I only learnt to make a quilt last year, and my problem is I am impatient, and quilting requires patience, with all the cutting, pinning and ironing. I made a patchwork one years ago, just joining squares of leftover fabric from dress's I had made for my daughter when she was small, and that one hasn't fallen apaprt yet :) . Iwas pretty self tauht then. However last year I learnt some proper techniques, and have most of the equipment which I require. I've had problems with the binding, but are trying to go easy on myself, as its my first 'proper' quilt..Its the rail fence design. I just want it finished, so I casn strt on some mini ones to hang around the house..
    I think this forum is great,

    Blessings - Linda NZ

    Linda, isn't it exciting one the quilt top is done! That's my favorite part -- cutting and piecing. The quilting, I procrastinate. You have found a good place to share ideas, get inspiration, and learn new things. Also you can share your projects with us. Good luck and welcome to the board from South Louisiana.
