    That's a pretty braid. Love the pastel blue framing it.

    I didn't prewash. I washed in cold water with four color catchers. I am keeping it so am not worried about how it will be washed. I did hold my breath when I opened that washer. LOL! Quilting Bug (I believe) has a pattern for the braid pattern you are looking for. It is for a table runner but you could just keep going. I have to go to work but will research when I get home.
    Happy Quilting.

    I really like this quilt! I especially like the color selection for the sashing and borders, and how it shows off the myriad colors of the batiks, rather than competing with them. BEAUTIFUL!

    I have just discovered the wonder of batiks -- love the variations among just one piece of fabric. I have braided panels completed in a green/rose/purple stripped batik, but need to fit them into a quilt. I had only one yard initially, so I was able to make six braided panels to put in the quilt.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. How many different fabrics did you use? Did you plan the braids?

    Great work.

    I used a jelly roll. The only plan I have is that I didn't want repeats in a braid. I can't wait to see yours when finished.
    Happy Quilting.

    I don't think I've ever seen a braid quilt made from batiks before! It's absolutely lovely!

    Very pretty colors!
