On the Edge

Mastering Binding Techniques

A technique class where you will learn many binding methods and lots of tips and tricks along the way. Since this is a technique class we will NOT be “making a project”. We will be making a binding sample pack. This will allow you to try the technique and have a piece as a reference. This will be a class for beginners or experienced quilters.

What you will learn


-    How to cut bias binding very accurately and easy
-    Standard method of binding application
-    Flange binding
-    Piped binding 2 ways
-    Picture frame faced binding
-    Curved binding
-    Striped binding you make from strips
-    Reversible binding
-    Hexie and irregular shaped binding
-    Prairie point binding – continuous fold, accent edge and two-color points
-    3-D prairie points for piecing and borders

You will need your sewing machine and minimal supplies for this class. A complete list will be available on the web site. Since we are not making a project you will be able to use up scraps and strips to make your samples.
