The best thing I saw in blogland this week was a tutorial on how to piece batting together. It happened to be on a real life friend's blog, but it's so fantastic I would be posting about it even if she were a total stranger!
I won't tell you how it's done - just go and look at it on her blog, HERE, but I'll tell you that I've been quilting for 18 years now and it never entered my mind to piece batting together the way she shows. It is so easy and SO obvious! Just goes to show that you definitely can teach an old dog new tricks. I will never hand stitch batting together again. What a waste of time!
While you're there you can check out the finished quilt she quilted on my machine a few weeks ago. It looks beautiful, and the quilting is quite fabulous!
