Quilts at QuiltCon

As we mentioned in our QuiltCon recap, there was so much to see and do last weekend at the conference. The vendor booths, lectures, workshops and the quilts. Oh the quilts! Quilts from all over were entered into the juried show and winners were displayed during the conference. Each quilt was inspiring and breath taking. We could have spent hours perusing the quilts!

I copied the wrong thing for answer for the Blitz--your answer for binding
What is Kimberly's favorite way to quickly and simply press a binding?
