French Braid



And as I promised the completed French Braid quilt. This was such a fun thing to put together. I didn't imagine it would be as easy as it was. This is the first quilt that I actually went and bought all new fabrics for. That was the hardest part of the entire process. Picking 12 fabrics and a border proved to be a very long process. Thanks for all the great help from the shop employees. I love Holly's Quilt Cabin,here in Denver, where I found these wonderful fabrics. For those who have not tried this yet, it is so much easier than a log cabin quilt, and it is fast. Completely doable in a day! Yeah, I love those kind of projects, where you see immediate progress.

Still need to finish binding my other quilt top and I have yet another on the longarm. Hope to have photos up very soon on those.

Have a great stitchin week!

  1. What a striking group of colors. I agree, it's a fun quilt, and easier than it looks. I've made one but gave it away. Your pretty quilt is putting me into the mood to do another one. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Please share this pattern.....I am looking for charity quilts that would be interesting looking. And again, like you, I have so much stash that I think I probably would have enough to make one of these!
