Quilts for Kids Frog Quilt Completed

I finished another Quilts for Kids quilts today. At last month's meeting I discovered the joy of attaching binding by machine.

Bonnie, one of the volunteers was demonstrating how to sew binding on using a long-arm machine. Her technique included stitching the binding on by starting from the back then folding it over towards the front.

I felt more confident to try it after watching Bonnie complete a quilt in no time at all. It was so quick and easy and the mitered corners came out very nicely. I can't believe I didn't try it years ago. I probably won't use this technique on some of my better quilts until I build up my confidence but for now I will do all my donated quilts this way. Now I can finish my quilts at a faster pace which means I can make more sooner. :-)
