    friendship quilt

    Has anyone made a friendship braid using the half hexagon templates. The pics and video look really cool and I am using all chevrons and zigzag type fabric,

    Has anyone made one with that template before. Let me know how it turned out if any of you have?
    Thanks

    Yes I watched it 2 or 3 times then I go to my sewing room and can't quite remember. I have short term memory loss and can't remember sometimes for more than a few minutes what I just did, saw or said so I need a pattern on paper. I know with all the you tube videos most people don't buy patterns but I have to so looking for it on paper specifically using the half hex template which I have already purchased

    My mom and I took a class and used that template. I had done braids before the traditional way and I found using the template much easier. Good luck!

    Thank you for your websites. I really like the braid. Pinwheel is interesting but doing one right now with the June Taylor twist and stitch and love it.
