Three-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. In this class, Grace will share how you can create perfect 3-D 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 3-D flange and a double 3-D flange, prepare and apply the “Bording,” join the tails correctly to finish the “Bording,” and finish with binding techniques for a show-quality quilt.

Grace’s trademark is VALUE. In this lecture, she will focus on value and its importance in textile work, along with various color harmonies, color theory, and, the psychology of color. The expressive aspects of color and value in nature and in art/quilts will be discussed. At completion of the lecture, attendees will see value and color in a new way and will start releasing the artist within. Learn how to use value to create a focal point, to set the mood in a piece, to create three-dimensionality, or to give the illusion of perspective in a landscape, and learn how to show off those traditional blocks so the design shines. This is a crowd-pleasing lecture, entertaining and fun, full of funny real anecdotes and actual quilts for show and tell. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
