Meet your instructor, Eva Larkin Hawkins, and get off to a running start as you learn how to select and prepare fabric, and how to audition and pin your borders before quilting.
Learn about various types of templates and stencils, and how each one is made. Working with purchased or homemade materials, you'll learn how to create the designs you want and transfer them seamlessly into symmetrical patterns.
Spacing can make a huge difference in your designs! Eva shares a mathematical formula that can be used to determine the exact number of repeated sequences you'll need for any border length. Practice along with Eva as she demonstrates measuring, marking and repeating various border patterns.
