Not too much Christmas spirit here yet, this is the first "Christmas-ey" thing I've even considered making this year. On Thanksgiving, my sister Donna asked me to make a "traditional" wall hanging of a tree, so here it is. Just have to cut some binding tonight after work and sew it on by machine.

I receive many queries regarding quilt binding, specifically machine stitching the binding, and would like to clarify a few technical, but not difficult, binding matters.
I'm posting today as part of the blog tour for Tacha Bruecher 's new book, Hexa Go-Go , which is a fabulous collection of quilt projects featuring English paper pieced hexagons. You can find a schedule of the other blog tour posts here . I think it's always exciting to learn a new technique, and I can happily say that Hexa Go-Go taught me how to do English paper piecing with hexagons. Like so many of us, I've been seeing the gorgeous EPP projects on Flickr for years, but I hadn't attempted it until now. The how-to instructions in Hexa Go-Go are straightforward and comprehensive. My favorite thing about Tacha's Getting Started With Hexagons chapter is that she describes multiple ways of completing certain steps, along with pros and cons of the different methods.
