Mary’s joining binding tutorial is here. It covers the whole binding process so scroll through most of it to see the joining part.

Here is a 4 minute video that shows another easy method. You use the end snip from your binding to cut your overlap.And a simple diagonal fold makes a really easy join.

Patti showed her quilt with custom cut name letters on the back. Patti used her Cricut Explore Air 2 cutter. Here is a little video that describes the process. There are lots of alphabets and object files to chose from. All of the MakerSpaces at the Norfolk library have Cricuts, but maybe not the same model. They are used more for scrapbooking and cutting paper.
