The cover quilt was made by Lissa Alexander using a strip-set technique. I like the jazzy brightness of her version and the constuction technique looks very easy to follow. I'm using a different technique for my Many Trips project because I want a more symetrical look for the blocks. I'm planning to put together a tutorial showing my method.
I really bought this issue for the project on page 66. It is called French Braid. I like the colors, what I call scrappy within a limted color palette. And these are my colors!
French Braid goes on my very long projects to make in the future list.
My posts will be a bit sporadic over the next three weeks or so as I see a very busy time for work and family ahead.
