You've pieced your patchwork, now what? Here is help and instruction to help you take the time to continue the creative process right on through the borders, and do it right!

Borders instruction given on DVD:

Typically, classes take a quilter through the making of the interior of a quilt without much thought to borders. Sometimes, simple instruction are given for a straight border, but:

  • What if your vision for the quilt needs more?
  • What if you want the quilt to be larger than the finished measurements given in the pattern?
  • What if you put on straight borders in the past and they have created quilting challenges by always ruffling instead of laying flat?

Paula will teach you the best methods for achieving a square quilt that's "bound" to turn heads while learning the proper techniques and different styles for bordering your quilt.

Paula addresses the following in the instructional DVD, with lots of close-ups:

  • How to measure correctly so that your border lay flat.
  • Demonstrates various types of borders:
    • borders with cornerstones
    • "crumb catchers" (sneaky way to add color to your quilt withOUT adding size)

Bindings instruction shown in detail on the DVD:

  • Dreaded miter corner will no longer be a struggle
  • Straight bindings
  • Bias bindings
  • Scalloped edges
  • Prairie points

The PDF files (to be printed as resource material) on the DVD includes:

  • Fat Quarter Quilt Pattern: Sample table topper for exploring border techniques and edge treatments
  • Calculating Borders: How to Measure to Accommodate Pieced Borders
