When we hand quilt at my church, we always use the same color thread as the backing. We tried using a contrasting color one time, but the bigger stitches showed up so much among the smaller ones, that we vowed never to do that again. When I hand quilt the entire quilt myself, I use whatever color thread I want. Just remember that when using a contrasting color thread, the stitches show up more.

I haven't posted here before or it's been a while. If this isn't the place for this, or if there is already an answer to this somewhere, please let me know on here.
I'm finishing up a table runner quilt kit I bought from CT. I'm at the binding part. Two of corners are 45 degrees, but the other four are at least 60 degree turns. Can I miter those corners? Or is there another way to do those corners?
Yes, you miter them the same way as 45 degree corners...just ignore the degree & turn up the binding as you normally do & turn it back down the same way...then continue sewing until you reach the next corner. You will love the result. It makes no difference what the degree is.
I'm looking for two patterns. One is quilt pattern called "Santa Baby" out of Buggy Barn book Positively Crazy. I already have 6 of their books but don't have this one. Other pattern is set of 4 pamphlets from Blackbird Designs called Christmas Memories which is out of print now and can't find anywhere. Anyone willing to share if you have them? thanks for checking! Sylvia
Go to Buggy Barn web site & order their Positvely Crazy book for "Santa Baby". They have a very active newly enlarged shop and mailing service.
