Another class I really enjoyed at the Utah Guild Quilt Festival in St. George was "Stash Buster Braided Rug" taught by Bonnie Barker. After talking to us about how she discovered this particular technique, which are the best fabrics to use and why, and explaining how to prepare the fabric strips to ensure a long-lasting rug, she started her demonstration.
Using a braiding board designed by Bonnie, the large group of students watched carefully, asked questions, and were expertly guided by the teacher throughout the evening. Bonnie handled the class superbly!
I can't show you my sample because it belongs to the student I replaced in class. However, I learned the technique, have the board and will start one very soon... What a fantastic way to make a braided rug!
Check out Bonnie's blog - http://cityhomecountryhome.blogspot.com : you cannot help but drool as you read her recipes, 'aahh' as you enjoy her writing, and dream as you travel back to the wonderful memories her thoughts invoke...
