Next BAS Meeting - Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Karen Kay Buckley

Karen Kay Buckley presents "To Border or Not to Border-- that is the Question"

Karen will discuss if a quilt needs a border, how to select a border for your quilt, how she designs many of her borders and how to measure to ensure a flat quilt. As she shows you many of her quilts, she will discuss her border choices and share some fun stories along the way. Karen hopes 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.

This month, the speaker will be first on the agenda, promptly at 7 p.m., followed by our business meeting.
