September Meeting Highlights

September Meeting Program: "BACK to Basics"
with Kristina Morrow, Janeese Olsson, Sheila Green, Pat Kant and June Pederson.

Our talented members showed us how to make the backs of our quilts look as great as the fronts.

Janeese showed us different ways to baste a quilt, including thread and pin basting, fusible web tape and spray basting.

Kristina made several samples of different binding methods, such as magic binding, facing, pillow casing and how to use the quilt back as binding.

Sheila covered a couple different ways to make a quilt sleeve, as well as shared some different hanging rods. 

Pat's thoughtful quilt labels inspired us to up our quilt label game! 

Thank you for an informative meeting ladies, we learned a lot!
