  5. Advice on Sashing for French Braid Quilt

    I'm finished... I have to say WOW... I'm feeling really great about this quilt.

    It was a wonderful learning experience from beginning to end. My corners are still not show quality according to Sharon Schamber's tutorials. But I have to say they are better than any corners I have made before. The stitching all around on my binding is excellent. I don't know that I could have really done any better. I think its my best hand stitching work ever.
