Well, genius may be stretching it a bit, but hey, I'm really good at copying other people's ideas. It's not very often that I have an original one! But then again, maybe everyone but me is already doing this and no one told me!
I usually have a trail of binding in my lap and onto the floor while I am sewing the binding on a quilt. This is my first Queen sized quilt, and that is a LOT of binding! So I stabbed a pen into the little space between my insert and my sewing machine and put the binding on it. Voila! It doesn't get twisted or tangled up with anything... Yay me.
