AQ Magazine (American Quilter) an American Quilter’s Society publication has a Fabulous Finds section. I’m super excited to share one of the “fabulous finds”….Brilliant Bindings!!!!! I knew it was going to be highlighted but didn’t want to give it out before it happened. It is the May 2021 issue. I haven’t received my issue yet but several quilter friends have. Thanks to Kathy Beltz for sharing a photo on Facebook of the “find”. It is below. If you are an AQS member and get the magazine, you will have it!!
As said in the “find” this is the tool for binding for easy perfect mitered corners and finishing the tail ends. Plus I have 14+ patterns that use the tool as a cutting template. Brilliant Bindings is the original tool with this trapezoid shape for bindings. The BEST, if I do say so myself. You can find Brilliant Bindings on my website HERE. Full color instructions are included in every tool package. Do you loose your instructions for tools….tip…#1 – Keep it in the package with the tool it came with! Be sure to checkout my video on YouTube and I also have a few on my Facebook page. More videos to come later in the year.
On another front, I posted my fabric pull for the next Imagination Renovation April Block Challenge. This month we are focusing on the PINWHEEL Block. Take a look over on my Instagram page @debbiewendtquilting. My fabric choices are below. I love these Kaffe Fassett dots!
I could use your help, though. Which background gray would you use? I’d love to hear your vote in the comments. Lighter gray on the left OR medium gray on the right?? The difference in the two in the photo is very slight. There is a little more variation in person.
#2 – Sometimes backgrounds can be as important as the focus fabrics you choose.
I hope you you will go bind a quilt with Brilliant Bindings! And please, I’d love your opinion on the background.
