3-dimensional flanges and perfect bindings add a unique spark and a professional finish to your quilts. A “Bording” is a perfect binding, but it is wider – 1” wide – so that it doubles as a border as well as a binding. In this class, Grace will share how you can create perfect 3D flanges, and “Bordings” will be covered with step-by-step demonstration and practice. Working on practice pieces will allow you to achieve stunning results with this edge-ing. You will learn how to prepare the quilt for the edge finish, prepare and apply the 3D flange and a double 3D flange, prepare and apply the “Bording”, join the tails correctly to finish the “Bording”, and finish with binding techniques for a show quality quilt.

Chip off the Block: Make Large Quilts on Your Home Machine, #38516

Chip off the Block: Make Large Quilts on Your Home Machine – #38516

Day: Saturday, 8:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Location: Roosevelt II Room
Teacher: Stacy Michell
Level: All levels
Member: $48 Retail: $60
(Plus Kit Fee)

 


When Stacy was making her quilt, Honolulu Hurricanes, she found a secret technique hidden in a Hawaiian appliqué block, like a pearl in an oyster. Just like the classic pearl, the technique is versatile enough to fit with many styles of quilt, not just Hawaiian. This technique will allow you to join prequilted sections together on a standard home machine with ease. This class will help you find some balance between a whacked and slashed quilt in a day finished with a signature stitch from the local longarm quilter, and a never-finished quilt of your dreams sitting dusty in a hand quilting frame. Breaking it down into manageable parts is the key.
