French Braid quilt class

Well... we had a great time in class last Saturday... I was able to snap a few photos of French Braids with their sashings and borders before they were taken home.

I expect in only 2 hours of sewing at home the participants will have finished their quilts.

These were made from Jelly Rolls or Rainbow packs (these are packs of 2.5 inch strips) This one belongs to Rosemary.
Maree used the Astor Manor jelly roll (I think that was the last one in stock).

Rosie used a Pashmina Jelly Roll and matching border. We are out of the jelly roll, but we still have some of these fabrics on the bolt (designs inspired by old pashmina shawls).

Sue used this bright jelly roll. She is going to join squares from the layer cake for the outer border.

Dee chose this Christmas Rainbow pack - doesn't it look fantastic teemed with the Wintergraphix for borders and sashing?

Debbie used the pink Rainbow pack. I chose a print from the Holiday Heritage range for the sashing - it went perfectly with Debbie's border fabric.
Look out for this class again next term... I will schedule 2 new dates for full day classes on Saturday.
