    I think it could be done either way. I like the first one better.

    I did one couple years ago. It went together like this
    ===================== sashing
    >>>>>>>>>[ ]<<<<<<<<<<< braid, block, braid
    ===================== sashing
    >>>>>>>>>[ ]<<<<<<<<<<< braid, block, braid
    ===================== sashing
    >>>>>>>>>[ ]<<<<<<<<<<< braid, block, braid
    ===================== sashing
    I had a really nice focus fabric for the middle block. I wish I had taken a photo that I could share. This was given as a gift to good friends. These are fun to make.

    Sharon- good idea to lay them out on the bed and forget them for awhile. WhoM knows-they just might re-arrange themselves the way THEY want to be. lol ! The colors are beautiful and no matter what you decide, it is gonna be beautiful and it will be received with LOVE!!!

    Thanks :) I'm working on my Downy Quilt for Kids Quilt, finishing a quillow, my mum's quilt and a granddaughters quilt...plus 5 Christmas stockings :) :) ...so a break is a good idea. Often works for me :)
    I like the colors, I didn't think I would, but they seem to work in the braid design. Live and learn :lol:

    Sharon-You sure are busy!! I just ordered 10 Downey kits today! I've got my quilt group all fired up to make them. Hopefully we can make MORE from our own stashes, too! They are soo simple. I have finished 10 (so far) "20 minute pillow cases" (in flannel-to be used as wrapping for Christmas gifts!), working on a Christmas wall hanging (that is desperately wanting to be a (my) bed quilt (LOL)), trying to get a quilt finished for my friends birthday this month.... and the list goes on and on and on.... WAHOO! I LOVE IT! Have put YOUR quilt "on the LIST"!!!

    I just made a French braid one and used strips of contrasting fabric between the braids.. makes them really stand out.. will take a pic and post in the near future. Try that and see if you like it..

    How did you quilt when it was finished? Stitch in the ditch or what?

    LOL - Jodie

    I gave this at Christmas and the only pictures I had of it were blurry. I asked my son to take pictures (front and back) since I pieced the back :).
    Hopefully, I'll get them soon. I ended up SID, and was soooo pleased with it. Alina loved it too, so that was wonderful.
