  2. Well done 4 page document on binding. Most of the sour grapes comment on FB refer to seeing the marketing right up front. Perhaps show the binding instruction first then offer the ways to obtain it later. Thank you for your posts, TV series and magazine. I am a consumer of all and feel I really learned to quilt from these combined.
    I appreciate any and all things available as my quilt shops don’t always offer the basics yet with diverse techniques such a modern, etc.
