Technique Tuesday :: 4/10 Brother DreamWeaver Sewing Tutorials

There will be times when you need to get a quilt done to meet a deadline and you don’t want to spend an extra couple of hours hand stitching the binding. This tutorial shows how to bind a quilt from start to finish with the Brother DreamWeaver Machine without sacrificing neatness – at all! Once you give this a try, you may never want to hand stitch again.

Here's the finished binding (front of the quilt),
done completely by machine!
Looks pretty awesome, wouldn't you say?

This is the fourth tutorial in a series of 10 that I am working on. I've been so enjoying this wonderful sewing machine!

Here are the tutorials so far:

1. Perfect Half Square Triangles
Brother Canada has very generously provided me with a V-Series DreamWeaver™ XE Innov-is VM6200D (yes, I'm very excited and so grateful!!), but all ideas and opinions on this blog and in my tutorials are my own.

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I have a thing for chevrons!! So, you can imagine by delight when I discovered my new sewing machine has a built-in extra wide chevron quilting stitch! How awesome and fun! In this tutorial I’ll demonstrate how to use the character/decorative stitches and there’s even a video of the DreamWeaver in action stitching out the chevron design!

This is the third tutorial in a series of 10 that I am working on. I've been having so much fun learning all the wonderful things this sewing machine can do!
