Gorgeous quilt and I love it on the fence. So I noticed the way you folded your binding -- is that single fold? I usually end up getting my binding tangled under the wheels of my chair!


Sometimes I throw my binding over my left shoulder... Lol

Yes it's single fold Stephanie! I usually do single fold.. just a habit. Double if it is a quilt that is going to be used a lot.

Beautiful quilt. I too put the binding on the floor but had not thought to put it in something. Thanks for sharing - now to find the perfect jar!


I love this quilt !!!!!!


The jug is such a good idea! I don't have any spindles, I rolled up and taped an old magazine to make a 'spindle' for wrapping my binding and it lays in my lap. A jug would be so much easier, I'll try that next time. Thanks for the tip.


Love it! Your jug, jar, vase is much more attractive than the kleenex boxes I use! Great quilt!!


May I ask why you have JANOME taped to the side of your Janome machine?


What a beautiful quilt! Love the jug on the floor too! I actually clip a large zip lock bag to my table right beside my machine...it holds my binding - which I "accordion" fold - that seems to work the very BEST for me - never tangles or 'turns'.

Thanks for the tutorial, Pat. I have those spindles too, they are on my mantel! Guess I'll take them down & use them!!


Love your Secret Garden. Thanks for the tip for the binding holder...I'm going to give that a try.

OH! I'M SO EXCITED TO HEAR ABOUT THE HEAVY JAR! I've had one of the kid's from a middle school project sitting around for years, not ever knowing what to do with it, but just not willing to . . . well anyways, now it's got a great purpose. Thanks for sharin.


Beautiful quilt! And why have I never thought of putting my binding in something like that? GENIUS!!!
