Borders & Bindings -- AQS, Knoxville TN

There were six participants in our Borders & Bindings workshop on Thursday -- everybody finished their little quilt tops, then gathered 'round to learn how to do mitered borders, prairie point finishes, double fold mitered binding and scalloped bias binding. And, of course, we had to do a group ta-da!
There were some really fun fabric combinations in this class, so we have to take a closer look:

used a patchwork type fabric as her focus and inserted a tiny plaid as her crumb catcher (narrow folded strip inserted between two borders) between the first and final borders. The crumb catcher really stood out....

We had great seasonal fabrics represented -- Carol chose Halloween, one of my very personal favorites!
Andrea chose this great oriental motif fabric and surrounded it with some interesting prints for a very sophisticated effect.

Nothing shy about Kathy's fabrics -- very wild 4th of July, all RW&B with stars!

And we all really liked her sparkly flip-flops, too!

Jan's focus fabric was such an elegant Christmas print; her other fabrics helped to capture the feeling of the holiday season.

Susan also worked in Christmas prints, but in a more playful, laidback fashion.

Thank you, ladies, for spending such a fun day with me at AQS in Knoxville!
