    Re: Binding question

    It makes pretty wave that catches the folded edge well. It's really easy to miss the edge with a straight stitch. You can adjust the serpentine to a variety of sizes/lengths of curves/waves

    Re: Binding question

    For machine binding I also sew on back and flip to front, but I use the serpentine stitch to sew binding down not straight stitch

    Re: Spray Basting and Wrinkles

    On small quilts I find pressing after spray basting helps remove wrinkles. Not sure if that is do-able with a large quilt, though.

    Re: College quilt

    I did something like this for my DDs at college. Only I used my emb. machine to emb. things they were interested in, simple patchwork. That was nearly 20 years ago and they still use them
  8. Re: What size needle do you use when binding a quilt?

    I hand sew it with what ever needles I happen to find in my sewing box. Usually have DH thread several ahead of time so I can switch them out as I go.

    Re: coffee

    Black coffee should come out better than coffee with cream in it. The fats in the cream will set the stain more( at least that's what a dry cleaner friend told me}

    Re: odd question

    Sure, why not? Maybe you can quilt it with lightning, wizard hats, etc. I would keep it simple

    Re: Width of binding on self binding blanket

    I use 1/4" seams. With 10" difference you should have a 2 1/4 " border. Divide you 10" difference in quarters, 5" on each side which will end up being half on front, half on back.(Minus the S.A.)
