57. Foundation Piece a Scrappy Braid Pattern

It's time to finish up our very last foundation pieced pattern! This pattern really is one of my favorites because it created such a beautiful effect in the purple hair section:

This pattern is also extremely easy, which is a relief after the last blue section we worked on! It comes together quickly no matter if you use very wide or very narrow strips.

Let's learn how to piece it in this video:

So we've finished all the different hair pieces for Express Your Love! On Thursday this week we will learn a new quilting design, so next week can be all about turning the edges of these foundations and attaching them to our log cabin background!

This process has taken a long time to get through, but hasn't it been fun? I've definitely enjoyed pushing my boundaries with this piecing design and creating an entirely unique goddess with fun new techniques.

Let's go quilt,


  1. Leah, if you use very fine vinyl, instead of pieces of material as foundation, the finished job is not as cumberson
