Show 1607 - The Art of Color Braiding

Featuring: Jane Hardy Miller / Peg Pennell

Posts On: March 30, 2015


Quilter Jane Hardy Miller’s stitched together her first French Braid quilt many years ago. Over the ensuing decades she has refined and elevated the pattern into a complex design with 12 colors and a sophisticated palette. The results are stunning! Jane shares her secrets for selecting fabrics (often surprising), and using contrasting colors, accents and different values. She demonstrates her COB technique – working out from the center of the braid. She takes us on tours of both of her studios and talks about the highs and lows of each one. We continue the studio tour in Nebraska, where quilter Peg Pennell shares her space. Her quilts are unique because of their shapes, but they also feature heavy quilting, beading and embellishment. You will learn a lot from Peg!
