Let's Bind It!

I hope that each of you quilters is playing along with this Mystery Sampler. The blocks have been selected not only for how they fit into the finished quilt, but for the different skills each block teaches to improve one's skills. Whether you are a seasoned quilter or a newbie, it's sometimes nice to have a refresher course in the basics. I know that preparing these updates for this mystery sampler have made me slow down and think about the process. It's made me take special care of my pressing, my cutting and my 1/4-inch seam allowance. I think that at some point we quilters take so much of our skills for granted, and we also assume that new quilters just know things without being taught. Through the years, I have taught so many classes where there are quilters who have been quilting for a while but they haven't been taught the basics -- basic things that would make their quilting go so much easier and so much nicer. This is all I am trying to do here in this update. I want to give to those who need it a bit of extra knowledge and some encouragement, and to those who already have that knowledge and confidence, make them aware that there is a need to share their knowledge and experience.

All best,

Carolyn
