Quilt As Desired
You have pieced your top and the directions say “Quilt as desired”…end of directions. Whether you plan on quilting your top by hand, on your home machine or on a longarm machine, planning, preparation and good design choices are essential for pleasing results. Learn how to make quilting design choices that enhance your top and where to find inspiration. Find out how your choice of batting, backing, and thread affect the final results of your quilting.

The Value of Value
It has been said that color gets all the credit and value does all the work. Discover how the value of your fabrics affect the quilt design. Understanding value and learning how to read the value of your fabrics can help reduce those unwelcome “surprises” in your finished quilt no matter what color scheme you use. How often do we dismiss a pattern or class because we don’t like the colors in the sample? Using value, learn how to translate any quilt pattern to your personal color preferences.

Fantastic Finish
Are you tired of seeing those same old wide straight borders on all your quilts? Come and learn how easy it is to spice up your quilts with scalloped and curved borders, prairie points, piped binding and more.
