I am wanting to make a quilt for my grandparents for all the work they did to come to my college graduation. I was thinking of doing the French Braid pattern. I have two jelly rolls I purchased from connecting threads (seaside samplers) and each one has 24 strips. Will this be enough to make a queen size quilt? I am considering adding some type of sashing in between the braids and borders. I have not made a quilt from this pattern yet.
Also, I'm not sure I will be able to grade the whole braid like the ones I've seen on the board (from light to dark). If the v's were in random order would it look okay (i.e. blue, tan, green, blue, etc.)?
Thanks for the help.
