What Makes a Quilter Tick?
A Humorous Look in the Mirror
Join me for a fun-filled, interactive, eye-opening look at quilters and all the little quirks, passions and obsessions we all share. We’ll hold a mirror up to ourselves and see what others see when they look at us. Bring your friends and family along and maybe it will help explain, to you and them, why they look at us the way they do.

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.
