Scrappy braid workshop

One of my sampler groups decided that they would like to make some smaller projects, so have been working on braids. It was more like a workshop because they each decided on what they were making, a runner, topper or small quilt. Then we figured from there. So lots of thinking and planning went into these. Last week they had their last class for this project and all were ready to quilt.
They all attempted machine quilting their last runner and are getting much braver!These small projects are good to practice on.

Binding on, ready to stitch down on the back.

Linda started a month after the others, so got this far in class. She wasn't happy with her borders, so took them off and tried again. It turned out much flatter the second time!  She came for the UFO Saturday and started machine quilting it, but I didn't get a picture. Hopefully she will bring it to the next session.
I think they might be addicted to braids now...time will tell!

I did a ribbon border on a Round Robin quilt, years ago. I liked the look.
