"Mix & Match Quilts - how to mix and match blocks and borders to create beautiful quilts" with Cyndi McChesney. During the past three decades, Cyndi’s passion for this artistic craft form has grown to include the traditional hand techniques she learned from the Amish community in Ohio to the fast paced machine piecing and applique techniques used today. Cyndi is also a competent long-arm quilter with a growing business finishing the tops of quilt makers throughout Colorado.
Class: "Setting Options & Pieced Borders" Tuesday, April 8. Discover how to bring a collection of existing quilt blocks together into a stunning quilt through setting options and the addition of pieced borders. Create a beautiful quilt using one, two or more of your favorite blocks and add pieced borders to set them apart. Students are encouraged to bring a collection of existing blocks with which to design a quilt. Start from scratch or work with what you have! We'll talk about how to figure math for the pieced and coping borders.
