Membership Meeting – Karen Kay Buckley
May 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Meeting Agenda

  1. Program – Lecture:  Karen Kay Buckley

To Border or not to Border, that is the Question
(1 hour) – During this lecture I will discuss if a quilt needs a border, how to select a border for your quilt, how I design many of my borders and how to measure to ensure a flat quilt.  As I show you many of my quilts (via Power Point if flying) I will discuss my border choices and share some fun stories along the way.  My hope is to inspire you to think about how to enhance your quilt with the right border.  Designing your own borders is much easier than you might think.

Something New on Every Quilt TRUNK SHOW
This standard trunk show illustrates the progress in my quilting style and complexity. I make a conscious effort to try something new in each quilt, and this lecture chronicles my journey.
