    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

    I don't know how it is "supposed to be". But, I like the first one - alternating rolls. Very nice!

    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!

    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?
