Then, learn how to make the back of your quilt look as good as the front, with must-have techniques for mitered corners, and hand and machine stitching. Next, find out how to create and apply piping that adds a pop of color to your binding and instant visual appeal to your quilt.

Using the included class worksheets, learn how to easily calculate fabric yardage for borders and backings.
