Classes - The Finished Edge

The Finished Edge

Beginner/Intermediate - 2 day only!

Sue and her sister, Pat Holly, incorporate unique finishes for their collaborative quilts as well as their own personal quilts. Learn how to create these unique finishes for your own quilts. Start the workshop with Sue’s expert techniques for free-motion machine quilting your mini-quilt. This mini-quilt will then be used for practicing these creative finishes. Sue will step by step take you through the scalloped edge and in demo format show a traditional binding, piped binding and a wonderful loopy edge binding.  Your mini-quilt will be a reference for future projects.
