Beautiful Bindings with Helen Frost. Price is $10.00 for the class and
$15 per kit (total $25). Achieve smooth bindings with perfect corners
and learn a great method for joining the ends. Get great tips on
preparing your quilt for binding. Make a sample of a traditional binding
as you learn some surprising new techniques. Try new “gourmet”
bindings such as two-color and faux piping and practice binding
scalloped edges. You’ll bind small pre-quilted fabric samples with all
fabrics and bindings included in the kit.
Supplies : Sewing machine with wound bobbins and neutral thread, 1/4" presser
foot* (not with a flange), Fine pins (not the yellow-headed or flower-headed pins –
they are too big), Seam ripper, Small scissors for snipping threads, 3-ring binder,
1" or larger, Optional: Paper or notebook for taking notes, *When binding a real
quilt, you would use a walking foot. However, to bind these pre-quilted fabric
samples, a ¼ “ presser foot works best.
