Sometimes the difference between a show quilt and an award-winning show quilt is in the details. On the judging floor, one point can separate a contestant from a winner. Bethanne will share the unique finishing details in her quilts, which have been proven winners in shows across the country. Students will focus on skill mastery using Bethanne’s original beaded piping in classic piping, on the knife edges of quilts, and as tiny appliqué stems. Rather than complete a finished project, students will make 4″ mini samples and receive a pattern to make a mini wallhanging. The class kit will provide all you need for your wallhanging details! Take your quilting to the next level with masterpiece details!
