    That's a Friendship Braid quilt. Jenny Doan has two videos on making them.

    And another work of art by Don. Very nice, but I can see how the repetition would become tiresome.

    I'd love to make one. If you would send me one of the templates.

    Looks like Eleanore Burns's Braid in a Day quilt. I have started one and am not really thrilled with the "journey"

    I got one of those wedges (as you call it ) on an Eleanor Burns Braid pattern. I have made several table runners and am in the process of making a quilt just like yours. I did not use the wedge at all, I just cut my strips and then pieced. Much easier. Maybe someday, I will use the wedge for something else.

    Enjoy arranging the pieces so the colors match up. You could cut the triangle off and make a court house square or some kind of quilt block that takes rectangles and triangles like flying geese.

    I think your quilt is pretty and will really look nice when you quilt it. I made one like this from Eleanor Burns. I think it's called Friendship Braid. I enjoyed making it, but I am new and not as advanced as you are. I do think it makes a nice looking quilt. And I really love the French Braid that fades from one color tone to another. I always enjoy seeing your work. Thanks for sharing.
