BORDINGS: Border and Bindings in one step!

In this class, instructor Grace Errea of Amazing Quilts by Grace will show you how to add spark and a professional finish to your quilts with three-dimensional flanges and perfect bindings. A “Bording” is a perfect binding but it is wider – 1” wide – so that it doubles as a Border as well as a binding.
We'll cover how to do perfect three-dimensional flanges and “Bordings” with step-by-step demos. Working on practice pieces will allow you to achieve perfection and stunning results with this edging.

You will learn how to:
1) prepare the quilt for the edge finish
2) prepare and apply the 3-d flange and a double 3-d flange
3) prepare and apply the “BORDING”
4) join the tails correctly to finish the “BORDING”
5) finishing binding techniques for a show quality quilts
