More on Simply Sixties

It’s time to announce the winners from my last post, but first, I just want to thank everyone who commented.  It was so fun to be able to share this technique with everyone and have so many who expressed their appreciation.  I heard from many who had been avoiding binding inside corners, but are now willing to give it a try!   That just makes my day, as I feel like one of my main goals as a designer is to instill in quilters a “can do attitude”.  I grew up witha mother who could do anything with fabric.  She was always figuring out innovative ways to solve difficult sewing issues.  In fact, she is the one who shared this technique with me, so Thanks Mom!  She is the one who inspired me to develop the “can do attitude” and I’m just trying to pass it on!

Now, the winners:

1.  Winner of the Sizzlin’ Sixties book:  Lisa A, posted on June 1 at 11:06.  (Comment:  I’m diggin’ that Opposites Attract pattern. I think that will work with the jelly roll I won in February. I’ve been binding a double wedding ring that has nothing BUT interior corners!)


2.  Winner of the Little Charmers 4 pattern:  Christine, posted on June 2, at 12:15 (Comment:  Thanks for the tutorial … very clear and easy to understand.

    Your trunk show is visiting our local quilt shop right now (in Jupiter, FL), and I would love to know what fabric line was used for the Beach Balls quilt from your Simply Sixties pattern. I just love the colors in this quilt and would like to see if I could find those fabrics.

    Thanks so much,

    I can’t thank you enough for teachiing me to bind. I’m a good hand quilter but never was happy with my binding stiitches until I tried your method. Consider this a grateful hug.
