Okay, I know I was on a roll earlier this summer and posting on the blog a bit more frequently.  Occasionally I'm going to try to now post some of what I will call "Tipbits."  These will just be little tips or tidbits of information on quilting, piecing, appliqué, embroidery - whatever we can think of that might be helpful to you.

Today we'll begin with a quick little tipbit when binding a quilt - Patty suggests doing all your four corners first.  Then the rest. 

Surprisingly whether you realize it or not, the binding can stretch while you're sewing it down around your quilt.  By doing the corners first, you can ease the binding, if needed, and prevent any stretching.

That's it till next time.
