    Now that I know how, I love them, In fact I'm planning to start on one in a couple of days. It will be a lap quilt that begins with a floral square (16") with French braids on either side. I'm planning on 3" strips, although I have used 2.5" previously.

    It does not matter too much on the size. If your strips are 2.5, then you should use a 2.5 square. Remember though if you use a really wide strip, your length should be longer to balance it out or you could lose the actual pattern.

    Missouri Quilt Company has a good tutorial. I'm ready to try it.

    I bought the Jane Hardy book as so many of you recommended it, it arrived yesterday. Wow there are some wonderful effects to be had with the French Braid. Now I just have to decide which fabrics to use and if I've got the right fabrics, if not, of course that means I have to buy more, oooooppsss . As always ladies you've been a great help.
