Finishing touches...

Avis 
 I met with the Beginning Quiting class last night and we got one step closer to a finish! Part of making a quilt is finishing it, so I teach them the steps to piecing a backing fabric,  layering and pinning their quilts in preparation for quilting or tying. In this class we tie because it's something everyone can do, but they learn that the prepping for tying is the same as  if you were quilting it on your home machine or hand quilting it.

 They got a lot of tying done while I helped them baste the edges. ..a very important step!

We meet again in 2 weeks to make the binding and attach it.

What great projects. I particularly like the pink one - it just screams Spring.

A nice quick way to get a finish but still learning how to prepare it properly for the future.
