Drumroll please!!! ...
machingers quilting gloves, and holy shit, what a difference! They made quilting so much faster. I highly recommend them (I know all of the pictures of the gloves look like hamburger helper hands but they don't look that way in person). I also decided to hand stitch the binding because I loved the quilt so much that I didn't want to risk messing it up by machine binding. My first quilt has quite a few mistakes from machine binding. I had no idea that hand stitching would take so much longer, but it was worth it. I can't say that I'd do it on every quilt though! I think I am keeping this one. Maybe the next quilt I make I will give to someone. I get so attached to them! I think if I start out knowing that I am giving it away, then it will be easier to let it go.
