Texas Braid...

Back in January, I taught a class in our quilt guild how to do the French Braid quilts.  I found this really fun
scrap quilt in Bonnie Hunter's Leaders and Enders book.  You can find it here. It is made up of 2" x 5" pieces of fabric and 2" pieces of fabric.  You use light and dark fabrics for the contrast.  A very fun technique and this quilt is entirely made from stash (most of it small pieces).
A close up of the quilting.  I had it quilted in feathers.

Are you kidding me. That thing looks like it took forever. Which I am sure it did.
But, it is gorgeous and definitely a keeper.

Beautiful quilt!! Bonnie Hunter was here (Baton Rouge)a couple of months ago. Love her scrap quilts. I think this is my favorite quilt in the book.
