WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON CLASS:
This "Binding Basics" workshop will give you tips & tricks to finish your quilt with flair! Discussions will include perfecting those mitered corners to solving the mystery of that final spliced seam. We'll have fun with scallops, prairie points, faux piping and chenille, then learn tricks to conquer curvy edges, odd-angled inside and outside corners and more as we test out some of these alternate endings on a sample project. Class will wrap up with a mini trunk show of prize-winning finishes.
