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.

Quilt Line as the Third Design Element (Day One)

Quilt Line as the Third Design Element (2-Days) – #28203wt

Day: Wednesday, Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Conestoga AB
Teacher: Hollis Chatelain
Level: All Levels

Member: $176 Retail: $220


Join Hollis and explore new ideas on how to use quilting to enhance the look of your quilt. It’s time to go further than just holding three layers together with stitches. The main objective in this class is to use quilting lines to create depth, texture, tension, or shadowing that gives a new dimension to your quilt. Lines can be inspired by an endless variety of things (nature, architecture, technology, etc.) to add visual interest and reinforce the overall design of your quilt. Even straight lines can become a design in themselves! You will be working with the quilt tops you bring, which can be traditional patchwork or a contemporary design. This class is based on free-motion machine quilting, but the design techniques can be adapted to hand quilting. Experience in one or the other is required.

Registration for this class includes show admission for Wednesday and Thursday.
