Date: Friday, August 3 (10 - 1)
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
Learn the technique of bias double-fold
binding with crisp corners and machine or
hand finishes, all while making a cute
"Three Pocket Purse". Class will
also include a discussion of other binding
techniques such as mock bindings and
"pillow turn" bindings. Rather
than working on a quilt, students will work
on attaching bias binding to an 18"
square of pre-quilted fabric. This will
ensure that everyone completes turning four
corners and finishes off the ends. (Kit
fabric may vary from photo below.)

"One Block Wonder" is the term used
by Rosenthal and Pelzmann in their books to
describe quilts composed of a single repeating
shape usually cut from one fabric, and then
put together in a kaleidoscope arrangement.
These quilts are fascinating and require
constant input from the quilter, which makes
for an engaging experience until the last
