May 2013 Monthly Meeting

Guild Member Doris Rice presented an interesting and informative program on adding borders to a quilt top.  She emphasized that the key to properly fitted borders is to measure, measure, and MEASURE!  This will prevent puckering in the top.  Doris explained that there are plain, pieced, and mitered borders and gave clear instructions for each.  Thanks, Doris, for clarifying this important and finishing element for our tops!
