Oh, there are so many sites to visit, patterns to see, videos to watch, and beautiful fabric to inspire. I'm hoping these will foster creative thoughts as you head into the holiday weekend.


Quilt Binding

Pat Sloan shares her technique for applying quilt binding by machine, and using a blanket stitch on the front. Her pictures and video are very clear. She makes it seem so easy!

Jennifer at That Girl ... That Quilt created a method of binding the edges of her Hexagon quilt. Lots of tutorial pictures to follow. And I really like the look of her table runner using the hex shape:

Apron tutorials

A Girl's Garden Party Apron

And then I searched for "free apron patterns". Oh my! These ought to keep us busy making aprons for the Fashion Show! The sites have long lists, but some of the links have nice patterns. Click here and here and here and here.
