Designing on a quilt

Designing a quilt 

 I'm working on this quilt and have stitched in the ditch on the whole quilt.  Now I want  to start designing designs on the quilt!   I don't want to mark it because I'm not sure what I want to do yet? 

So I got that stick cellophane on the quilt and traced the center space. 

I double layered the cellophane to make sure that when I marked the cellophane no ink will go through!  

Then I pulled it off and put tracing paper on it!! Now I have a template of size and what is on the design! 

Tracing paper! 

Looking at different designs

These designs are from a book that are copy rights free!! Meaning these designs have no copy rights!  I bought this book years ago! 

This is my first design! I like some thing but still want to do some more! 

Designs to see what catches my eye!

Unique way of Quilt Binding

Unique way to Bind

One video is of the whole process of binding.  The other is just how to connect the ends of the binding together without all of the confusion.  Sometimes this is the most dreaded part for me.  Somehow my mind cannot keep the techniques that I have learned from it laying on the table to moving it to the sewing machine.  So a client asked me if I had a simpler way and as she was with me I found one.  I'm so excited to share this. 

This is the simpler technique of putting the end of binding together.

If your binding strip is 2 inches measure 2 inches as they overlap.
If your binding strip is 2 1/2 inches measure 2 1/2 inches as they overlap. 
You need a glue stick Elmer's glue wash away.
A fabric marking pen

Connecting the ends of Binding easily

This video is the whole binding tutorial
This has tricks on how to make sure on the back you binding is completely straight and have a 90 degree mitered corner.  The tacking is easy and after your done the binding looks finished so all you have to do is sew the back of the binding without any puckering or shifting of the fabric. You don't need pins or clips to hold the binding as your sewing after this.

This is a tutorial that is 2 inches on how to connect the ends easily.
