Craftsy Giveaway – Finishing School: Edges and Bindings

As promised, it’s time for another Craftsy class giveaway – whoo hoo!! Since my quilt along tutorial on binding your quilt is coming up later this week, I thought it would be perfect timing to give away the Craftsy class Finishing School: Edges and Bindings with Mimi Dietrich. But first, let me tell you a little bit about this fabulous class.

20141027_finishing_schoolAlthough I pretty much bind my quilts the same way every time, Finishing School teaches you how to do several fun techniques such as prairie points, scallops, piping, ruffles, and more! There’s even a bonus section on the often overlooked finishing touches like adding sleeves and labels to your quilts.

The class is broken down into six easy to swallow lessons, each about 30-45 minutes:

  1. Using Backing as the Binding
  2. Making New Bindings from Scratch
  3. Adding Trims
  4. Rounded Corners and Scalloped Edges
  5. Prairie Points and Ruffles
  6. Sleeves and Labels

20141027_finishing_school_bindingsThere are lots of options for beautiful bindings!

Whenever I check out a Craftsy class, I always love reading the students’ comments and questions to learn more. Seeing what my fellow class-mates are making is super fun, too! Check out the cool coasters and trivets by craftsy member Pam in New Zealand. She was able to bind a project with more than 4 edges after taking this class! 🙂 (And her machine quilting is pretty awesome, too!!)

    Thanks for the chance to win this class. As a new quilter taking classes which can be reviewed over and over again offers you the opportunity to learn at your own speed.

    ooops!…make that a class-not a book….been up to long working on a scrappy Craftsy Quilt that I enlarged from a twin to a queen, It is looking good!

  5. AnnLouise Pugh says:

    Mimi is an excellent teacher…I expect her book to be excellent as well. I can always use binding help…or so some show judges have told me!

  6. Toni Anne says:

    I also bind the same way every time. I’d be thrilled to learn to do scalloped bindings and binding with pipping. They would both add such a different look to a quilt. Thank you to you, Christa and Craftsy for the chance to win. ;->
