Our September/October 2017 issue features her latest article, Fine Finishes I, Loopy Corded Binding. With her experience in entering shows, Margaret knows that beautiful design and fine quilting are not all that’s needed to become a top award winner. Details matter. With that in mind, she figured out how to add even more “wow” factor to her work through a fabulous finishing technique, her loopy corded binding.
