On the agenda this week:
Remembering my 2015 Resolution to FINISH!, I could not, in good conscience, leave the remaining trapezoids in the 3-inch braid box. Since I did not use all the completed braids in Sunflower Braid, I decided to make additional braids and see if I had enough to build more than a wall hanging. The difference this time being I will not stencil the separating strips. Instead I have cut lengthwise strips of this sunflower print.

I got to thinking -- that's a dangerous thing -- thinking about other braid quilts and how pretty they would be in more colorful fabrics and, and, and .... before I could think twice I had cut all my existing 3" strips into braid trapezoids.
Hence, the giveaway. To the first two U.S. readers who ask, I will split what I have already cut. It won't be enough for a whole quilt, but it will get you started and give you some variety to your stash. I will include instructions for cutting from 3" strips using an Easy Angle ruler.

Have a great week, Y'all!
