'Borders Making Them Fit'
       With Sue Garman
       Registration Opens: 03/05/2016

       Description:
    In this workshop, you will learn how to take a block, set it on point, and add pieced borders that fit perfectly. To accomplish the objectives in a short workshop, you must do some pre-workshop sewing. First, though, choose whether you want to make a 48-inch square lap quilt or a smaller 22-inch technique project. Either can be made larger if desired, using what you learn in class. The larger quilt starts with a 12-inch (finished size) block, while the smaller project starts with an 8-1/2 inch block (unfinished size) or an 8-1/2 inch square of fabric with a large motif on it. Sue strongly suggests pre-work be done in order to accomplish more in the class. Pre-work instructions are on the Supply List and Pre-work document.
