Feedback please!

Yesterday I posted a tutorial on Basic Rotary Cutting. I had a lot of positive feedback. 
I am thinking about doing a few more basics tutorials. Would you be interested in them? If so what in particular would you like to learn?

  1. Yes! Basic tutorials are so hard to find sometimes!

    One basic technique that I still stumble over, after 8+ years, is binding. Perhaps you have a quick, simple method you can share?

  2. I would love to learn easy techniques for binding that also look nice and finished. I usually make a border and fold that to the back, but my corners are not always perfect.

  3. binding on a curve! Cannot seem to get this to look/work right!

  4. I would love an easy and understandable way to get the corners square on the binding. Mine always seem to come out more of a curve than a sharp square.

  5. I'm going to go even more basic and say, how do you get patchwork points to match up? I made some simple 9 patch blocks and none of the points lined up! I'd measured and drawn a sewing line and everything (no, I don't have a 1/4 inch foot and at £40 no way can I afford one right now!)

  6. I would love to learn how to square up a quilt before it's quilted, and after it's quilted and ready for the binding.

  7. Yes, more tutorials would be great. How about how to baste a quilt, and also how to wahs a quilt once it is done? Thanks.

  8. I have a quarter inch foot but my stuff still doesn't line up properly! I know I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know anyone personally who quilts, so have noone to ask... so any pointers you have are welcome. Plus, how come there's such a dearth of info about how to plan a quilt by hand?

  10. how about the whole idea of "making it bigger and squaring it up" that I hear about - which types of blocks/block components it works for, etc.

  11. For the life of me I cannot get my squares the size they are supposed to be - probably not getting a propper quarter inch seam. I devour any tutorial there is out there to learn something new so whatever you have to offer I will print off for my "learning" binder! Thanks so much.

  13. I would like to know how to "square up fabric."? I know you touched on it in your tutorial, but squaring up the whole yard of fabric is different, right???
    How do you do it if you are using cotton on one side and flannel on the other, both fabric washed, dried and ironed ready for a blankie.
    Thanks!

  14. I would like to know the trick of using the applique stitch on a basic sewing machine around circles and letters etc

  15. I would love to know as much as I could about long arm quilting. Needles, threads, designs etc

  16. I need to know how to use some of the rulers and how to cut the angles, I just get very confused where to lie the ruler.

  17. I would love to see a piece on squaring up a larger quilt. It is so much harder to line everything up.
    Also on the different kinds of batting and if it makes a difference which you use.

  18. I really appreciate helpful tutorials like yours on cutting! I also would like tips on squaring up and trimming before the binding. And I want to know more about thread... okay, that is not really a tutorial, but something I'd love to understand and get some tips about. I just bought a new machine, and I've heard, "using good thread is important to maintaining your machine", but i have no idea what good thread is...

  19. Yes, please! I am brand new to quilting and the internet is my teacher. I am about to buy my first proper rotary cutter and acrylic ruler. Anything, absolutely anything at the very basic level would be great.
    Thank you from the bottom of my fabric box :)

  20. I love tutorial! I would like to learn all! :) Perhaps it would be most interesting to see two techniques one against the other and little tricks you learnt on your quilter's journey!

  21. Basic tutorials would be great!I would love a basic tutorial on the ins and outs on binding!

  22. Oh yes please would I ever. I am having such trouble with everything. I really want to do this wonderfully but at the moment I am dreadful at it. I'm just going over to look at your tutorial and thank you so much for posting it.

  25. I think the basics is a great idea... it helps people who are just starting as well as those of us who have used... just sharpens the skills (escuse the pun!)
