Overview

To help you choose the perfect finish and complete your quilted creations with confidence, co-authors Jill Reber and Margaret Sindelar combine their expertise from years of professional quilting and designing in this comprehensive 144-page needle arts technique book.

Browse through the galleries of new and antique quilt borders, backings, and bindings. Select from the myriad of choices and practice projects to help you master the ABC's of everything from applique to borders with curves. You'll find it all here with helpful tips along the way- using triangles to repeat a patchwork design, creating applique borders for dimension, adding depth with specialty fabrics using mitered corners, borrowing irregular borders from an antique quilt, placing simple blocks in corners or for an all-around frame, bordering with rectangles used as piano keys, featuring gentle curves and scallops for a graceful finish, learning the techniques for most-often-used bindings, trying distinctive edgings with step-by-step photos to guide you.

To learn six classic border treatments including applique, choose the impressive quilt Working My Way Around, or start small with projects ranging from wallhangings to table toppers.

Clearly written, easy-to-understand, illustrated in full-color with complete instructions, diagrams and step-by-step photos, this book will be one of the most useful reference books in your quilting library.

Piecing the patchwork top is only the beginning. Adding the perfect border, backing, and binding to complete the quilt will make it uniquely yours-from start to finish!
