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.
