Cami brought this gorgeous quilt!




 See her Sashiko Style!




She also made a version of a quilt from The Quiltmaker's Journey

'

We loved the backlit stained glass effect.


She's also working on these itty bitty granny squares.


Jeri made this awesome top for a friend of hers.


It's the same pattern as her bicycle quilt.


Here's Chiska's very first machine quilted quilt.

Mary taught us her fast and easy way to bind a quilt

Start in the middle

Fold it straight up and then down.


and then down.


Press the raw edge end  over 1/4"


Fold it down


Slip the other end into it


Like this:


This is the way you prep your fabric
Cut 3 inches the width of the fabric
Keeping them folded cut at a 45 degree angle.

Sew edges together like this;



They will line up perfectly.
