   Linda Wagner - “Edgy”


In this trunk show, Linda illustrates the options you have when it comes to borders.  Borders can be what defines your quilt and gives it real visual impact. Do not settle for the quick and dirty.  A little extra piecing can create tremendous attention getting results!

Borders


You’ve finished your blocks and the quilt is done....oh you actually expect me to sew the blocks together - AND it needs a border. So, you just cut an interesting fabric into larger strips add it on all sides and call it done. If this describes your quilt making, you are missing an opportunity to add a little extra to your quilt and create something stunning. Our class will explore options that use simple techniques to create the WOW factor.  In class we will learn a method for making a simple block. These blocks could be used to make a quilt, but we will focus on how they can make stunning borders.
