Live Workshop-Finishing Up!

January 15, 2022 9:00am -12:00 pm Central Standard Time

Come join me for a live virtual 3 hour workshop to learn 6 different techniques to finish the edges of your quilts. We will cover added accents, two-piece bindings, facings, prairie points and edge circles.

Students will construct their own examples of each technique. I will send digital instructions for you to use as reference.

Supply List for Finishing Up!

Please make 4 -10” by 10” muslin “quilt sandwiches” to practice on.  These could also be made from fabric you no longer want for a quilt.  Just layer fabric, batting, fabric and sew around the outer edge.

TECHNIQUE 1-Accent Strip Attached and Floating

      Two strips of fabric 1 ½” by 10”- pressed with the long edges wrong sides together.

                Leftover binding strip from your stash that is at least 16 “ long

TECHNIQUE 2 – Two-Pieced binding 

       One strip of fabric 1 7/8” by 14”

       One contrasting strip of fabric 1 ¼” by 14”

TECHNIQUE 3-Turned Facing

        One 10” square of fabric

TECHNIQUES 4 & 5-Prairie Points and Turned Down Back

      Six -3 ½” squares

TECHNIQUE 6- Edge Circles and Traditional Facing

     Cut three 3” circles

     Cut three 3” circles of a contrasting fabric 

       (use a template or a household item to trace your circles. If your circles are slightly bigger or smaller, that is fine, as long as they are all the same size.)

         Sew one circle of first fabric to a circle of the other fabric- right sides together-  Do this for all three pairs.  We will continue the process in class.  Making the circle pairs ahead of time, saves time in class.

    Two 4 ½” by 12” strips of fabric
