Sometimes the difference between a show quilt and an award-winning show quilt is in the details. On the judging floor, sometimes one point is all that separates a contestant from a winner. Bethanne will share her 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!

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, this technique is versatile enough to fit with many styles of quilts, not just Hawaiian. Join Stacy and learn how to join prequilted sections together on a standard home machine with ease. You will find some balance between a whacked and slashed quilt, finished in a day with a signature stitch from the local longarm quilter, and the never-finished quilt of your dreams sitting dusty in a hand-quilting frame. Breaking it down into manageable parts is the key! You’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish on your home machine with this brilliant technique.
