QUILTING & FINISHING


 ** Be sure to stop by the store and visit the classroom- all the class samples for these great classes will be hanging.**

 

Flawless Binding
Learn how easy it is to make and apply basic double folded binding. The binding that you apply to the edges of your quilted quilt tops can make or break the final look of your quilt. Nothing detracts from a quilt more than a sloppy binding or poorly formed binding corners. This class is intended to instruct you on the basics of straight, even binding, identical corners with true miters and connected ends that don't tell where you started and stopped.

Whether you have never quilted before, or have done some quilting but are not happy with the results, you will benefit greatly from this information packed two-day class.

Making Custom Quilt Labels     

You have finished your beautiful quilt, now it’s time to make a label to do it justice! In this fun half-day class you will explore quilt label designs and options: do you want a label or would you like to make a document pocket to sew on the back of your quilt to hold photos or letters. Annlee will help you with deciding on your message and choosing a type face and teach you about using iron-stabilizer, Pigma Pens and a light box (offer alternatives) and the importance of practicing your lettering on waste fabric. And finally you will learn about embellishing with border fabrics and sewing your finished label onto your quilt back.
