You have pieced a striking top and the quilting is lovely, but the last step is holding you back. This class will take you through the binding choices that confront you. Topics will include double fold binding, two toned binding, art quilt facing, self binding bias vs. straight grain and hand sewing vs. machine sewing. We will discuss which type is best in a variety of situations. This class is appropriate for any level of quilter and the instructor has been binding quilts since the 1980s.

Are you tired of sending your creations off to be quilted by someone else? Or are you tired of wrangling a whole quilt as you cram it under the needle of your machine? It’s so much easier to quilt your blocks first and then join them. And the best part is that it’s easy to do the whole process on your home machine. We’ll work on these skills in two sessions:

Session #1: Machine quilting 

Session #2: Joining the blocks.
