Today's Tip: Binding

We are going to share a series of sewing tips and tricks here on the Moda Bake Shop. Would you like to share your favorite sewing tip? Send us an email.

Today's tip comes from Jennifer Overstreet of {}.

Jennifer suggests trimming away the excess fabric at your corners when binding your quilt. This cuts down on the bulk and leaves you with a nice smooth corner. It's especially helpful when you are working with true bias binding and curved edges.

See how Jennifer's binding turned out on her Tea Time Quilt.

Happy sewing!

Wisconsin Shop Hop

During the month of June, quilt shops in the state of Wisconsin held a state wide shop hop featuring the Moda fabric collection, Wisconsin Shop Hop.  The shop hop was held June 8-24, 2012 and the participating shops were able to submit pictures of their display in a Moda Display Contest headed up by two of our fearless sales reps, Stephanie Hove and Julie Kehne.
Thank you to all who submitted a picture for the contest. It was a difficult task of judging the displays and selecting only 3 winners. If you are in the Wisconsin state area, be sure to visit the shops and congratulate them on their efforts!
