I bought a new jigsaw puzzle the other day because I thought it was just too pretty.
When I got home I turned it over to see who the artist was because
I couldn't get over how much I liked the illustration.
It made perfect sense once I read her name.
I already read her blog and follow her on Instagram.
Check her out at Geninne's Art Blog, to see more beautiful stuff.

After two sides and two corners of binding I remembered a tip I read somewhere.
(Sorry, I don't remember where I read it.)
I also don't remember exactly how she stated it, but it went something like this:
Begin a couple inches before a corner. Work up to the corner, work the corner and then a couple inches past the corner. Knot and cut your thread. Repeat on the other three corners. Now stitch the straight sides of the binding. If you don't like corners you don't have to think about them anymore and the rest is smooth sailing. Even if you don't mind corners the rest of the binding should go quickly with no corners to slow you down.
I have now stitched my remaining two corners
and am ready to breeze through the remaining straight sides.

My latest finish is a gift for GB#3 for his first birthday.
It was fun and fast.
I think it is the fastest I have made a quilt from cutting to completely finished...ever.
