Bonnie Browning shows you many ways to finish your quilts – it isn’t rocket science.

Use the downloadable pattern included with your class to make a small wallhanging along with Bonnie or add borders to a small quilt you have already finished.

Start by designing a border that will fit your quilt. You will love her method for folding adding machine tape to take the math out of making borders that will fit your quilt every single time. Then learn Bonnie’s tricks for mitered borders and a fun piped border.

Shark’s teeth and prairie points add so much interest to a quilt and you’ll be surprised how easy they are to make to fit the edge perfectly. Mitered binding or a two-sided binding finishes the edges.

See how blocking your quilt can take away ripples to make your quilt hang straight. Bonnie even shows you how you can adjust the sleeve to make the quilt hang better.

Once you’ve taken this class and learned these basic techniques, you’ll be surprised how much more fun it is to finish your quilts. Any time you want a refresher, watch it again.

As a bonus, Bonnie shares some of her quilt collection and talks about the variety of borders you can add to your quilts.

For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.
