    Earlier in the Spring-Summer, I saw a picture of a quilt with the French Braid or the F.Braid by itself.
    Can anyone supply me with directions and a picture of a french braid?
    thanks, Mariah

    You can do a Search here for FB and all kinds of beautiful quilts will come up. There's probably a tutorial among them.

    I just finished a small french braid throw the other week, it is a lot easier to put together than it looks. Have fun with it, it's one of my new favorites.

    Just a word of warning--It is all bias and be very careful not to stretch the strips. It is very easy to do and then one strip is longer that the rest. Took a class and the instructor told us not to even hang on a design wall until the straight pieces are added. Otherwise easy to make and very pretty.
