    It's late but I finally finished the french braid quilt I made for my husband's grandmother for Mother's Day. I don't know whether she liked it or not, so far I haven't heard anything. I hadn't planned on making it and since I was short on time I chose the french braid pattern since it is so easy. I'd always wanted to do one and after Googling for a free pattern, I dug into my stash and added to the fabrics my mother-in-law had picked out. Grandma's favorite color is red and she adores roses. She crochets and everything in her house has chevrons, so I think the quilt will fit in nicely. I quilted it using my 6600 Janome, using FMQ to quilt roses and leaves across it. I used Glorianne Cubbage's "Twice Quilted" method, which I absolutely love!!! Thanks for letting me share it with everyone.
