    This is my second French Braid using the same fabrics for the braid; just a different color for the separator bands and borders. I also made it larger all around so it will fit our queen bed. This one is actually going to stay in our house. :)

    I love the colors

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love French Braids anyway, and you made excellent fabric choices.

    Love your French Braid. Your colors are so nice. It's no wonder you are hanging onto this one. I wouldn't let it go either. Great job :thumbup:

    Great job! I am working on a french braid quilt now. I have 5 rows done in batiks, with cream triangles and I am going to put black saching in between.

    I love this. Your colors are wonderful.
    What is the cut size of the square in the middle and what dimensions are each braid.
    I have some fabric picked out for one of these quilts, so I'm trying to figure out how much fabric I need. My book hasn't arrived yet and I want to get the batiks while they are on sale.
