This month's program is called "Finishing School."
Looking for a new way to finish off your latest quilt? Be sure to attend our March meeting for an enlightening learning experience. Members of Village Quilters will
offer mini-demos on various ways to finish the edges of a quilt: binding, facing, couching with
yarn, prairie points, scalloped edges, rick rack, cording, etc. Our members have so much experience and they are generously sharing their expertise with all of us.
Also at our March meeting:* If you signed up for the Block Exchange, bring your
7" square jewel-tone batiks. See sample below.
