Binding Made Easy

Next time you need to bind, you're going to say, "Bring it on!"

No more hesitation.

Take those quilts to the finish line!

A new class is on its way!

Binding can sometimes be a daunting task when it comes to finally completing that quilt. But it doesn't have to be! Join Kris as she shares with you her tips and tricks for getting the perfect binding for every project! 


There's more than one way.

From curves, to bias, from machine to hand, we'll cover it all!

Not all projects are created equal. Straight of grain or bias? What are the tricks to getting the binding to meet at the ends? How do I miter a corner? How do I bind a scalloped border? What about a circular project? Should I bind by machine or by hand? All of these questions and more will be answered!

Kris Thurgood

Owner & Instructor

Owner of My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe and former co-host of the popular web show, The DIY Dish, Kris' greatest accomplishment is being the mom of 4 great kids and the wife of one amazing husband. When she's not sewing, she loves belting out 80's songs, and embarrassing her children with her 14-year-old dance moves. Taking an occasional nap ranks #1 for the perfect week and her greatest wish would be to have a full-time chef at home! :)

I took a class from Kris.  It was fun and the instructions given were specific.  It was a class on embellishment, something I was not good at.  After the 6 session class,  I am confident and embellishing is finally FUN!

If you are looking for someone that is patient, kind and tolerant of everyone – Kris is the person you want teaching your quilting class.  She has the knowledge, but even more so, she has the ability to keep everyone in the class up to speed and going. She is a great friend and a wonderful teacher!
