We’ve blogged about Happy Endings many times since Stitch This! was launched. Why? Because it answers most any question you can come up with about quilt borders, backings, battings, and bindings.

More than 275,000 quilters have given “happy endings” to their quilts using Mimi’s essential resource. Did we mention that Happy Endings is Martingale’s best-selling book of all time? Yep. Of all time. And now you can own the eBook version for only $6.00.

You’ll discover oodles of inventive ways to complete your quilts in Happy Endings, including:
