A Fine Finish

The HQ Studio Educators teamed up with Love of Quilting magazine to showcase the transformational step of finishing a quilt. We provided each educator with a section of the Rouge Roundabout to quilt, and asked them to share their creative decision-making process. What elements did they consider when approaching the quilt design? How did the piecing influence their choices? The end results were featured in the May/June 2016 issue of Love of Quilting. We were so pleased with the outcome, we wanted to give the feature more space, and add tips and tutorials to give you more information.
