Some times finding an easy way to do something crosses your path in unexpected ways. That happened to me with this tip. I'll be honest, I don't bother to bury my threads when I quilt. I don't enter competitions and I am still in the learning stages. So, I just clip those threads and move on.

Then she uses the Lasso method since it is much easier and faster. Wait, she had my attention. She stopped and quickly showed us and it was brilliant.
So I searched You Tube and found this short video that shares the method and I wanted to pass this along in case any of you don't know about it.
A big thanks to one of our members, Susan K, for sharing this video. It is detailed instructions for sewing a flange binding and getting good results.

I did a little research and here’s what I found. If you, too, have a monster pile of quilts, maybe this will help. Rolling quilts is a good way to...
