Linda Halpin – Borders on Parade
Borders are not just to make your quilt bigger! Over three dozen quilts will be shown, all with different border treatments for your consideration. How you frame your quilt can be so much more than just four strips of fabric added to the edges. This program explores the wide range of possibilities for border treatments by examining dozens of variations on border treatments, how wide to make borders and lattices, and making edges that don’t ripple. Bring a camera! Slide presentation accompanied by a trunk show that examines a dozen variations on border treatments.
