Maple Leaf Quilters

A Quilt Guild based in Rutland Vermont, with members from surrounding towns and counties.

      Welcome to Maple Leaf Quilters

May 19th Meeting

QUILT BORDERS

 

 

When do you decide on your quilt borders? As part of the quilt planning process, or do you wait until the main portion of the quilt is complete and then look to your intuition or stash for inspiration? 


There are actually many ideas to consider.  How wide should a border be? How many inner borders? How do you select the best colors?

 

Susan Parker of Hen House Fabric in White River Junction, VT, will share some great ideas on how to finish a quilt with special borders, along with a trunkful of show and tell.  She offers interesting ideas on how to look at your quilt and make decisions on what will work best with it, tips, techniques, and how to give it that extra little punch to make it really shine!

 

Meeting starts at 7:00pm with time for refreshments and visiting beginning at 6:30pm.
