Half Hex Braided Row Quilt

This little throw quilt has too many names.  And they’re all descriptive names mostly on how it is made.  It is a scrap, a column, a braid, a 60 degree and a half hexagon.   I can say it was fun to put together.  It started last summer with Fons & Porters “Love of Quilting”…..the technique was interesting and I had a lot of leftover 2 1/2 inch strips.  Using the 60 degree triangle it  was easy cutting.  The Hexagon template could be used, then cut in half….the result is the same.  I used the triangle since that’s what I already owned.

Once the braid is together there is NO trimming…..no waste. I added strips between the braided rows and the frame and then a border. Since I was using what I wanted to use up and get out of the stash,  it needed cornerstones, too.   This will go to the Humility Shelter.

    Very pretty. I like the idea odf a braid with no trimming and waste. I’ll have to tuck this idea away. Thanks for sharing, and welcome to blogland.
