Binding and Finishing Quilts with Colette Wilson

Once the piecing is done and the quilt is quilted, what’s next?  Why the binding of course. Book now.

This class will teach you a variety of quilting techniques, from hand binding to machine binding to even adding a flange to jazz up that final frame on your quilt.

During this class you will learn straight grain binding as well as bias binding, hand finished biding and machine finished binding. The class will include demos as well as hands on.  We will supply the samples for you to use.

Your class fee also includes:
♦ Mini quilt sandwiches that we’ll prep ahead of time for you to practice techniques on during class
♦ A great, fully-illustrated book on the many ways to bind a quilt: “There’s More Than One Way to Bind a Quilt.” The book will be your reference after class.
