Do you have a stack of quilts that need binding but you just aren’t sure how to do it? Perhaps you’ve bound quilts, but aren’t happy with the results. If that’s the case, then this class is for you! Bindings are made easy in this class in which you’ll receive two kits that includes binding strips and a mini quilt on which to work so you don’t have to worry about messing up one of your own projects.

In the first half of the class, we’ll go through all the steps of traditional binding, from figuring out the yardage requirement, all the way to the hand stitching. In the second half of the class, you’ll learn how to attach binding completely by machine and add a splash of color at the same time. (This binding is NOT the backing brought to the front!)
