Throwback Thursday, Braided Quilt

This was one of my earlier “re-entry” into the quilting world quilts about 10 years ago. This was a class I took where the braided strip fabrics were sewn on a marked foundation in a paper-piecing style. The sashing was added separately. It was not a pattern I was familiar, though at the time I really had little knowledge of many patterns. I liked the pattern, just not the method.

Friendship Braid

The pattern is on my to do using the Binding tool I won at the Super Bowl Mystery Sew-in.

I saw this tutorial by Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Here is a close-up of the quilting. This was also an early attempt of quilting on my domestic machine.

It no longer hangs in my studio, last year I donated it to a local shelter.

Remembering what I’ve done, on the journey, Jackie

    Oh a good one to rejuvenate at our Tuesday Archives green them. It’s nice to think of it bringing someone comfort now. 🙂
