Q&A with Ladymax

Ladymax asked:
Hi abanabana, I am always unsure how to sew bias binding. I just used some extra wide bias binding that I purchased. I opened it and sewed on the first fold and then folded it and top stitched. I don't know if that is correct, but it worked. I think that now I will follow Tara's instructions.
Ladymax answered:
Tara, many thanks. I have now watched that video. I do not know why I seem to make small projects very difficult. They really are no different than a quilt.
Tara Rebman asked:
This looks great! Did you enjoy the process?
Ladymax answered:
Yes I did and I am already laying out my bag. This is a terrific and easy quilt as you go method. Do you have patterns or books for sale.
Davesmom asked:
Love your pot holder! Nice quilting. I find binding on small projects more challenging than big quilts. I actually used a 2 inch double folded binding on my maple leafs rug mats. I sewed really close to the edges and did it like I would for a quilt. I found the sewing the binding together at the end the most challenging.
Ladymax answered:
Thanks for the tip. I will use it next time. No more pot holders, but I want to make mug rugs for gifts.
