No quilting going on here this week due to my hand injury. (and its killing me I tell ya!) I go to the doctor today so hopefully I will at least have some idea of what it is and whether quilting will make it worse. I can endure a little pain no and then but I don't want to do permanent damage. In the meantime I thought I'd post about a book I really like - no affilliation, just admiration!
When working on the baby quilt a few weeks ago, because the borders were cut from a panel and were "directional" so to speak, I needed to miter my borders. I've mitered borders before but sporadically enough that everytime I do it I need to look at instructions again. So after looking at the instructions in the pattern and in another book on my bookshelf and not liking the methods they suggested I pulled out this book by Darlene Zimmerman. She has, in my opinion, the perfect method for mitering borders. She also has the perfect method for joining the beginning and ends of binding - not to mention how to do scalloped borders, prairie points, etc.
So, what is your favorite quilting "reference" book?
Have a pieceful day!
