Invisible Backing Seams

  • Maxie's Handi Quilter Market 25 Macon Center Drive Franklin, NC, 28734 United States (map)

Large prints are beautiful for the back of a quilt, but you may avoid them because the seams in the pattern are so visible. Let Maxie show you how easy it is to sew a completely invisible seam, matching the pattern in the fabric perfectly as she constructs an actual quilt back! And there are no pins involved! We’ll also cover what backing requirements are for any quilt to avoid pitfalls in the very last step of your project (ie, how to be on grain…you want a flat quilt, right?). We will even discuss using knits and stretch fabrics as backings! You’ll get a handout of instructions to take home so that you can easily duplicate what you learn in class.

Fee $20; 1.5 hours 10:00-11:30AM
