Taught by Sue Nickels
Now that you have machine or hand quilted your quilt, it’s time to finish it. Sue shows you how to block and trim your quilt so you are working with a quilt that is square and lays perfectly flat. Then she shows you how to add straight double binding with mitered corners and join the binding for a clean join. Finish with a sleeve if you are going to hand, and add a label to document the date of your masterpiece.

What you will learn:
— Blocking and trimming finished quilt
— Making, attaching and finishing straight-grain binding
— Labeling the quilt
— Making a hanging sleeve
