I haven’t made a quilt in about a decade. Learning that I am expecting a niece inspired me to sew something pink and soft. Baby clothes stress me out (all those tiny seams that need to match!), so I decided to make a quilt from the same pattern I used ten years ago. The only problem is, I don’t remember how my teacher taught me to bind quilts. The book has no instructions for her method. What to do? Google: “bind a quilt.” I discovered hundreds of quilting how-to videos on YouTube. Some of them are cheesy or unclear, but overall they’re surprisingly helpful. The best part is that I can watch certain parts until I feel confident.
A great use for technology
