I'm making a braid quilt for my soon to be DIL and she loves purple and brown....so that's what I'm making :).
My question is this: Are the braid supposed to go the same way or can they alternate?
I've laid out 3 of the columns to show you what I mean.
Any suggestions/comment are welcome.
Opposite way Example
Same way Example
I don't know how it is "supposed to be". But, I like the first one - alternating rolls. Very nice!
I think you can make it anyway you want!
beautiful work :) :) Something I've wanted to do :) I've seen them done both ways so, I would think that I would be up to you as how you would want the placement to be. Keep up the beautiful work :)
WOW! You have two gorgeous but very different and distinct looks. I like them both. Do it the way you like it!
The one I'm working on is all the same direction. I really like the alternating rows -- I wish I would have thought of that.
I vote for the alternating rows...but that's just me. It is going to be beautiful no matter what! The colors are gorgeous together. Excellent job!
This is the pioneer brain.......... I used this patter for the middle of one of my scrap quilts.
Attached are directions for doing the braid....... hope this helps.
If you need more PM me.
someone else asked my how to do this hope they find the instructions here.
Thanks for the kind words :) :). I'm leaning toward the alternating version but wanted to see what ppl had to say. I know it's not the "traditional" way, but my (almost) DIL is young and I'm thinking this would be fine with her. At least she'll know it's a gift from my heart .
Either looks great, but I think the same way makes it look more 3D. Or is that just my eyes?
