Class Overview

Are your Borders simply boring? Do you just slap on some strips of fabric to add length and width to your quilt? Take your borders from blah to beautiful with the built-in tools in EQ8. This fun class will explore a variety of borders and border styles from pieced, flying geese, applique, checkerboard and more. Use borders to jazz up a panel or medallion quilt. Your designs are limited only by your imagination.

NOTE: This class moves at a faster pace than the beginner classes. This class is for you if you have taken a beginner EQ8 class or if you have some experience designing quilts with EQ8.

I was pleasantly surprised – after the first day of the 2 day beginner’s class, I could have left happy with what I learned. Highly recommend.

This was my first time at the EQ Academy. And it was worth the wait! I learned so much, and came back home and started using what I learned right away. Created my first table runner in EQ8 and actually finished it. Can’t wait to start another project AND attend another class. Thank you for everything.
