    Batik French Braids done!!!

    I have decided that this is MY quilt. I usually donate all of my quilts (with maybe 2-3 exceptions) ... but I just love this quilt!

    I still have to add more brown fabric around the edges so that it actually covers the whole bed, and then the border itself.

    I have also decided that I'm going to "birth this quilt" and then try and FMQ it myself (LOL ... I learned a new term on here and the letters FMQ)

    And a MASSIVE thank you to MANIACQUILTER because without her I wouldn't have found the rest of the batik to finish the quilt!!!!

    So here it is so far ....

    Gorgeous! And it's right that you keep the ones you really love. You get so much from looking at them over time, and snuggling underneath. Happy day!!

    Beautiful! Your colors really POP!

    I like that you put your braids sideways on the bed. I did that with mine too.

    Great idea to put it sideways. I love the colors.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, mountian dew in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming. Yea haw what a ride! Suzie Sew
