  3. Advice on Sashing for French Braid Quilt

Will this be OK for a long arm quilter as they can stretch it tight and flat before quilting? Should I redo these and match the sashing and braid in the middle and sew out

    Well I found a perfect pattern for it just by accident. I think some of you may remember me mentioning a really good and well known quilter who lives her on the Island, Angelika Monks,

    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.
