We love making our quilts. We carefully pick the pattern, the fabric colors. Then we spend hours piecing, quilting, and binding our masterpiece. But the final step in completing the quilt is often overlooked--applying a label which identifies the maker, the occasion and the time period in which it was constructed.
In this class we’ll discuss why it’s a good idea to document your quilts, what information to include and methods to protect your quilts against theft. You’ll also learn several techniques for making attractive labels that will add the final touch to your beloved quilt. One of the labels we’ll construct is paper-pieced. If you don’t know how to paper-piece, you’ll learn the technique in class.
Plan to bring two or three of your un-labeled quilts so you can complete your quilts the day of class.
Level: Beginner through advanced.
