Oct 7 6:30 – 8:30 Demo: Two Methods for Joining Quilts by Sections; Adding Wavy Borders

Demo: “Two Methods for Joining Quilts by Sections” and “Adding Wavy Borders” (Barbara Rogers) Barbara tells us, I have always quilted my own quilts with one exception.  It was just too big, and I don’t own a long arm machine.  I had a king size quilted by a long armer.  It was beautiful, but it cost a lot.  Ever since then, I have used different ways to quilt a bed size quilt on my domestic machine.  I will be showing you three of these methods, and also an easy no-math way of making a wavy border.” (No sewing supplies will be needed.)

You will learn to make chenille in two different ways. We will show you how to make a chenille potholder and a “surprise” way to make the binding. The second method will use a product called “chenillit” which opens up all kinds of opportunities for creativity but in a “surprising” way!

Supplies: Bring your sewing machine, basic sewing supplies, and various colored threads (neutral and bright). Cut four (4) – 8” squares from same fabric for potholder. If you own a chenille cutter and/or chenille brush, please bring that, as well.
