One of the most challenging things to do is keep a list of internet links current in a book that’s printed.
People are constantly moving things around, updating their sites, deleting content, and otherwise making it difficult to keep track. My goal with this page is to attempt to keep the resources in my Binding Crazy Angles book up-to-date, so if you find yourself here, it might be because something listed in my book is broken.

How to Block a Quilt
If your quilt isn’t square, flat, and straight, your binding won’t be either! If that doesn’t bother you, go forth and bind! But if you’re planning to enter a show, or your quilt will hang somewhere, or you really do want to know how to get that pesky border to stop waving at you, here are a couple of neat tutorials on how to block your quilt.
