Binding with the Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray

I'm starting off this post with a question: have you read my previous blogposts about the Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray? If the answer is no, I've provided a link so you can read all about the many things you can do with this spray and download a FREE printable so you can make and use your own Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray. 

I've had so many of my subscribers tell me how much they enjoy using this spray and saving money at the same time. More money in your pocket is always a good thing, no?! If you haven't tried it yet, please download the FREE information and try it.

As more people have used this spray, I've been receiving questions about other ways that it can be used. I've found another fantastic use for it: binding. Okay, you will still have to stitch the binding down, but you can use the Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray to hold the binding in place so it is much easier for you to stitch. No more pins or clips required!

I can't believe that I didn't think of this use for the Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray sooner - it's so obvious and so helpful!

Vodka in the Quilt Studio

Vodka in the Quilt Studio

I'm sure you've heard the advice that a glass of wine can help relax you when you are free motion quilting: how about vodka? Not your usual quilt studio cocktail, but why not? Okay, while I'm using vodka in the quilt studio, it's not for drinking, it's for making an alternate version of the Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray. 

Text Design for The Oath from Quilt Traditions

Today I'm going to do a bit of bragging, something I try not to do. I'm mentioned in a book! My name is in a book. I'm in a book!

I was so excited to read the Acknowledgements section in Devon Lavigne's book, Quilt Traditions, because I was in it! There's nothing like seeing your name in print and I just felt so proud. Why was Devon mentioning me in her book? Because I helped her with a small part of "The Oath", one of the projects in Quilt Traditions

While Devon is a piecer, I love to appliqué, specifically fusible web or raw edge appliqué. Devon was working on Quilt Traditions and wanted to add some text and numbers to one of the projects in the book. She reached out to me to ask if I could help her out and of course I said yes!

I needed to design and appliqué letters and words for the two side borders on The Oath. It was a bit of a challenge, but I was very pleased with the end result. The Oath celebrates a special event, in this case an anniversary, and little did I know that the date on the quilt was actually Devon and her husband, Rob's wedding date. This made the quilt even more special!

To learn how I created the appliqué for The Oath, you can watch the video below or on my YouTube channel.

Devon and I have collaborated on another project: the online Potion Quilt Along. You can join us for this 4 part pieced quilt along from anywhere in the world - that's why I love the internet! Learn how to do a partial seam technique when creating the blocks in Potion as well as helpful tips on construction. Devon and I will give you tips and the back story behind this quilt from Quilt Traditions. Register now so you'll be ready to join us when the Potion Quilt Along kicks off on July 17, 2017.
