    Nice tutorial, did not like the fact she left her rotary cutter open as she talked, several times her hand got really close to the blade. Not a good example to beginner quilters

    Good information, well presented, with one exception. Please do not leave the rotary cutter open. Everyone forgets once in a while, but to leave it open routinely is a dangerously bad example.

      great video work showing exactly what is is talking about. very helpful. I am wondering, can you just stitch in the ditch to catch that back binding? I have limited mobility in my fingers. I can do it but it’s going to take a long time.
