    That was my thought exactly.

    OK...I'll bite..what is the potato chip quilt pattern?

    I think cathedral window pattern looks way harder than it actually is..it's not hard at all..just time consuming

    I just picked up a pattern for the French Braid, but haven't studied it.

    I want to study some of the colorways to see how to set them up for maximum effect. Thanks!

    For once, a search on here is counterproductive!

    I've always liked this pattern, but thought it was out of my reach. I'll have to revisit it. Thanks!

    There are tons on here, just do a search. Here's the one I did. The hardest part is selecting the colors. Assembly is very easy! The first braid section took me 1 hr, 15 min. The rest were faster.

    What have you tried? What do you consider simple?

    What tips can you give me on selecting color?
