In the decade since Jane Hardy Miller (www.frenchbraidquilts.com) first started designing French Braid quilts, she has written three best-selling books and introduced thousands of quilters to the dramatic (and astonishingly easy!) French Braid technique. She lives and teaches quilting in Miami, Florida.Review:
Many people have a specific vision of what a French braid quilt looks like, but Miller took the basic idea and came up with eight wonderfully original patterns, each different from the next. Her obvious enthusiasm for the traditional pattern translates into clear and helpful instructions for each technique. Each quilt is made in two luscious colorways to inspire creativity and provide options. (Quilter's Newsletter, December 14/January 15)
Miller (French Braid Obsession) has dedicated 11 years to the technique of piecing quilts that mirror hanks of hair tightly plaited in French braids. This fourth book in her "evolving style" coaches quilters in the sometimes tedious intricacies of marking, cutting, and piecing strips of fabric to stunning effect. She addresses two questions that have arisen about her process: the first is about fabrics that resemble chevrons in the braids and the second concerns the sizes of segments. Although previously, Miller has supported closely shaded fabrics in the "run" of the braid, she has now broadened her thinking, based on quilts made by others: "less-than-perfect braid runs still looked good." As for size, Miller varies segments in each quilt project and also within some of them. While laying out detailed instructions for the experienced quilter, Miller offers a semi-invisible way to machine-bind. The eight projects include scrap-quilt versions, such as "Crazy Braid," and ones with floating stars. Her encouraging style is firmly pedantic, and her tips are based on experience.
