I sometimes sew the binding to the back and use a decorative stitch on the top, especially on a baby quilt that gets washed a lot. Carolyn

I do the same.

Mel, it's a lot easier to sew the binding on the back and then topstitch on the front

Thanks for the tip! That is precisely what I tried first, but unfortunately, the decorative stitches that I wanted to use didn't work with the walking foot so I decided to try the other. LOL!!! I keep trying new things :) 

Thank you :) I'll give it another try. Anything's easier than hand stitching! (sorry to those of you who like it, but...not me!)

I just took my 12 place setting w/all serving pieces intact, to my son.  I've had it packed for years as I wasn't using it anymore.  His father & I picked it out together in 1972 in Japan.  Son didn't have any kids until 3 yrs ago. A girl, so he has someone to pass it on too.  He opened up one of the bins and just rubbed it with his fingers. 

PLUS it gave me a flimsy excuse to make a 2500 mile road trip to get it to him.  Along with a bunch of other family heirlooms that were his to start with.

We have a bit in common.  We bought our 8 piece set of china in 1973 in Okinawa.  Our daughter and her family received the set early last year.  And all the pieces survived Hurricane Dorian in September!

Where's the best part to get one of those stands with the tall wire thingy for big spools of thread?

Pretty sure I git mine at a sewing machine store.
