This was made by hand - no sewing machine - it took me about two years with toddlers. It was a kit that I saved money for....

I noticed it's starting to yellow a bit. Anyone have suggestions on what to use that's mild, my binding is starting to show a lot of wear! Thanks for any tips.

This hobby section with quilting has really inspired me again!

I wish I could sew a line and would die if I could do that. As for blueing you can find it in the laundry area of your store. I have also heard vinegar to help make things whiter but I have never used it.
