QUILTapestry technique debuts in the NQA Quilting Quarterly
Did you get your copy of the Winter 2012 NQA Quilting Quarterly? You'll find my directions on how to finish a quilt - the QUILTapestry way! Essentially it is a no-binding technique that also incorporates a rod pocket - great for wall quilts! You'll also find directions for my Ribbon Star QUILTapestry where you can try it out!
I developed the technique when I was making my Scandinavian series quilts. I wanted the quilts to finish with a neat edge, but I didn't want the visual effect that a binding would add. Pictures of all three quilts are on page 9 along with a picture of me wearing my Estonian national costume! The technique is also great for keeping neat the backs wall quilts with lots of embellishment or the not so perfect bobbin stitches of a novice machine quilter!
If you aren't a member of NQA and don't receieve the magazine, check out my website to see the quilts and a few more! Patterns for the Scandinavian series quilts are available through my website or at www.QuiltWoman.com.
