  • Choosing the right fabric
  • Calculating yardage (If you bring in the dimensions of one of YOUR quilts, we’ll calculate the amount together.)
  • Cutting binding strips (straight grain and bias)
  • Bias tape
  • Cutting stripes and plaids
  • Attaching binding to your quilt
  • Attaching to the front vs to the back

  • A Quilted fat quarter sample (Sandwich two fat quarters with a piece of batting in between, and quilt it. An all over meander or some parallel lines are fine; we don’t need anything fancy. We will learn to attach binding with this sample.)
  • ¼ yard scrap fabric ...ugly is fine!
