Tired of quilts that have more waves than Miss America? Want to learn to miter single or multiple borders without worry? Maybe you just want to spice up your same old borders and binding with something new: like scallops, flanges, or prairie points. Join Kris as she covers basic and advanced binding techniques using simple methods to guarantee perfect mitered corners and seams. Also discuss different sashing strip techniques, various edge finishes, and other ways to spice up your borders. Demonstration and samples will be provided. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
