Ringie Dingies  Susan Cleveland

Friday, July 14th, 9am-3pm | $95 Montrose Guild member or $105  Non-Montrose Guild member 

4 tickets left.

Double points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite. They also eliminate the need for the traditional appliqued circle in the center of each circle and allow rings to interlock! These Dresdens are built on a foundation so background fabrics don’t show through and, more importantly, Dresdens turn out perfectly flat. Learn Susan’s tips for speedily turning wedge points with the Prairie Pointer Tool. At home you may finish the quilt by quilting the background then ditch stitching Dresdens onto the quilted quilt! Design possibilities are endless!

Quilt Bindings: Simple to Spectacular

Saturday, July 15th, 9am-12pm | $45 Montrose Guild member, or $55 Non-Montrose Guild member

With lively projected demos every detail of a quality finish will be covered including some revolutionary ideas! I’ll cover preparing and squaring the quilt, making nice miters, joining tails (my special technique), and finishing for a show-quality back. Options such as an all-machine finish and odd angled corners will be shown as well. Things will then get wild with my Piping Hot Binding technique and lots of variations such as double-piping; embellished piping; invisible binding with piping; and, drum roll, please, my brand new calligraphic binding from my 2016 show quilt. Give your quilts the fabulous finishes they deserve! Supply list: Paper and pen
