    Re: Community Support For Tutorials - Calling all quilting volunteers

    I want to help with one but don't know what still is needed.
    It seemed like an old request.
    Is there and updated list? I could also help by translating it into Spanish if anyone might need it.

    The Binding Tool Explained


    1. Sew on your binding leaving a 12” opening. You will need a 10” tail on each side.
    2. But the flat edge of the tool up where you stopped sewing. Bring the binding over the top of the tool and mark as indicated.
    3. Rotate the ruler 180 degrees and repeat with the binding on the other side.
    4. Open the binding, laying the right side up and cut from the marks you made. Use the tool to make your cuts, be sure to cut the 1/4” straight line also.
    5. Sew ends together. Press seam open.

    TIPS: Notice how the edge of the ruler has the point trimmed off. If you cut the point off your fabric also they will line up perfect.

    Make sure the words on the ruler are always right side up. This will keep the ruler going
    in the correct direction

    I am very limited with data and that is when it works. I believe we are having dsl brought to us ( a country subdivision) but time will tell. I feel for the ones on dial up.

    Hi I'm Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. We have a wonderful project for you this week, for Turnover time. We call this project Light and Dark.

    What we do is take 1 of the turnovers and we match it with a lighter square in the package, or in this case we've used muslin. You lay them one on top of each other, do your 1/4" seam, iron them open and if you lay them in the direction, you'll see how they make a nice pattern and really make the colors pop.
    We've used, for this example right here (in the You-tube Tutorial), we've used Kansas Winter Turnover pack, and we partnered them with the light and dark and we had so many turnovers left over from this little table topper that we actually made a patchwork binding for it. Where we sewed the turnovers together and cut them in 2 1/2" strips to do our binding. It's really a fun and quick project and makes a beautiful table topper. We hope you enjoy your time this week at Turnover time at the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

    Wow, thanks to everyone who put the time and effort into transcribing and turning the videos into something we can print and go. You all are amazing.

    I went ahead and created #5 The Easy Tube Pillowcase Tutorial. Basically took images from the video and put them in to a tutorial. Please have a look and see if everything is clear.

    I would press the piping toward the cuff before I sewed the side seam. Other than that, the tutorial was very easy to understand. Good job.

    If you live in the country, you often have no other choice! I lived in rural MO. for 5 years and that was the only wire that came near my house, except the electric line. And satellite was way too expensive.

    I remember going to the tutorials via the blog and the tab above but seems that this has gone - so you have to go through u-tube now and no text - there was an option to view in 'old format' which had the text
