Thanks to everyone to who posted a comment about my quilt in the latest McCall’s Quilting magazine. I am so glad you liked the quilt!

Last week, I had the honor of speaking at the Arapahoe County Quilter’s guild meeting and then teaching a class for them at Holly’s Quilt Cabin on a quilt from my book, Smash Your Precut Stash.

We primarily worked on the quilt Down the Garden Path using my Braid Template. A few decided to work on Crosscut and Table Scraps instead.

It was so fun to see all the different braids and fabrics used. Some used jelly rolls, some cut up their scraps… I admit to being terrible about taking pictures. I am bummed I did not get more pics with everyone’s braids, but here are a few.

You can see her long braid section is done; it is hanging on the wall next to the original quilt. Looking good!


Class with their braids- love the variety of colors and fabrics!
