A couple of girls asked me to organize a binding lesson a long time ago.  So much has happened in between that time 
and now and a small group of us finally got our star gal, Maggie, to come to my house and learn her wonderful

I, myself, learned a few pointers and can't wait to try it out on my next quilt that will be quilted this weekend!

Enjoy the pictures...

Explaining stuff...

Starting point.

Maggie recommends we use a walking foot.

Preparing for the mitered corner!

I posted this entry over at the local guild blog.  However, it was at my house, and I wanted to post on my blog too!  I am working on my quilt now and hope to be done this weekend and have it bound.  I really want to try the new things I learned and hope they work for me because truly; Maggie's binding is the most beautiful I have seen!  I've seen A LOT too over the years!

Thanks for stopping by!

I use my walking foot for binding as well. Makes it go together without any slippage.
