Celestial Star QAL: BINDING

Celestial Star QAL with from blank pages...

Today's Topic: Binding
Assignment: Finish your quilting, square up your quilt, and BIND
On the Blog: Blog about it and link it up using the link up at the end of this post. OR you can also link up photos from Flickr* or Instagram.  

On Instagram: Take a picture and tag it using hashtag #CelestialStarQAL.
You can pick up a pattern on Craftsy and in my new shop!.

*If you are sharing pictures from Flickr, I started a Celestial Star QAL group, where you can also share your photos, or start up a discussion, ask questions, etc. I don't get on Flickr much anymore, but I'll try my best to keep my eye on it for any activity going on there. I still think Flickr has a pretty good platform for groups, even if the rest of the site has changed.
**If you decide to work faster than my schedule, which is fine, be sure to take pictures along the way so you can come back and enter the different giveaways!

As I started quilting and scouring the internet for tips and tutorials on how to quilt and do things the best way, I had a good list of tutorials that I pulled from for good bindings. I have since found ONE that I love and live by! Cristy said I could share the video on my blog, and so I will. This is her mother, Sharon Schamber, who is AMAZING!!! She does an amazing job sharing her amazing skills on how to create the perfect binding. If you haven't tried glue basting yet, DO IT! Every time I glue baste anything now (which I glue baste everything I possible can) I always think, "this must be what's it's like to sew in heaven." No pins = heaven! Perfect results = heaven! What more can I say?! 

If you haven't seen this video yet, it's a little long, but it's SO worth it. :)

You can purchase the glue tips in Cristy's shop,

Thank you Sharon & Cristy!!
