Many years ago, a quilt shop owner showed me her technique for binding a quilt by machine. I've used it ever since because it looks great on the front and the back of the quilt, it's easy, it's fast and it's sturdy. Here's a tutorial for how I bind my quilts by machine. Trim the backing and batting even with the edge of the quilt top as you normally would. Cut enough 2.25-wide binding strips to go around the quilt.

I recently came upon a new product that would give me the ability to give every quilt I make the contrast and color values I desired. The nifty new product? Sew Red Glasses. This product is exactly what it sounds like: eyeglasses with red lenses.

Choosing fabric colors with contrasting colors can be difficult. Using Sew Red Glasses makes this process easier.
