I'm breaking all the rules today and I must say, I'm now ok with the fact that old rules no longer need be applied.
What am I talking about? Well for starters, I pressed seams open!!

Hmm I just upgraded my phone and it's not letting me put the pics in where I want them, so I'll stop typing and let the pics do the telling.


  1. That's how I do my machine binding as well. I really don't enjoy hand sewing the binding down so I do most of mine by machine. I've also use a small tip on my glue bottle that let me use a smaller bead of glue. I can't remember where I got mine, but you can probably find them at your local craft store.

  2. I have to say that I am doing a lot of my seams pressed open these days.

  3. Funny, I pressed a seam open just last night. Less bulky

  4. I don't press my seams open, but if it makes you happy, I say go for it!! And I machine bind almost all my quilts now - life's too short to sit for two to three hours to hand stitch it down!

  5. Ah...the joy that liberation brings!!!!

  6. I also do a lot of machine binding - just depends on how I feel. Same for pressing open seams.
