Hands 2 Help Tutorial Day.

I'm so enjoying this quilting time and the learning of FMQ that is going with it.  I am however going to cheat and share two of my favorite tutorials.   My first is by Lori at the 
"In Box Jaunt" where I have learned so much about the different Free Motion Quilting finishes available .  She  is making this fun for me,  when it used to be so stressful.  It's like,  no more fear of ruining my quilt and instead, what can I do next.  It's all about the learning curve for me and the ones I have found here are not steep.
This Particular tutorial is what I have picked out as the FMQ pattern for one of my quilts for H2H.
I have found Lori to be inspiring and helpful.  She is a beautiful quilter.  You will want to check her tutorials and blog out.


My second tutorial is for a flanged binding that will finish my  second Hands 2 Help quilt.
I found this so easy for me to do the first time I tried it.  This binding gives anything you put it on that extra "umph".  Potholders, purses, mini quilts, place mats, you know "anything'.

Hopefully you will find these useful.  Or maybe you already have.

Have a safe and blessed Easter Day.


  1. Both of these are great tutorials! I have a lot of catching up to do now that we are back from vacation but I'll get on it.

    Happy Easter!

  2. Hello, I wish I knew how to quilt, as soon as I learn to play the piano, quilting is on my list...
    Blessings, Roxy

  3. Very helpful tutorials. 'Will definitely check them out :)

  4. I'm always telling myself that I've got to learn to FMQ, but for some reason I just don't take the time. I do like looking at Lori's tutorials, though!

  5. I'll definitely check out the FMQ tutorial. It is stressful to me also. Is the second Susie's Magic Binding? I love that method too.
