Do you cringe at the thought of making a bias binding? Well, cringe no more. In this class you’ll learn how to make a “continuous” bias binding. It’s really quite simple. Bias bindings are perfect for curved edges and a bias stripe makes a dramatic finish to many quilts. You’ll make a “practice” binding out of a fat quarter. There should also be time to make the binding of your choice for your next quilting project. Hope to see you!
