    Blazing French Braid

    Well I hope this worked. This was my first large quilt. It stated out as a lap quilt and ended up a Queen-King. I quilted it as each strip section was added. Thaks for looking.

    I think this quilt is gorgeous. I am getting my courage up to try one in Lime, Purple and hot pink. My granddaughter wants that. What size is this quilt? Thanks for posting it!

    Thanks everyone! I had to laugh as I thought about the whole process of making this quilt. There are three of us where I work that quilt. We had picked a pattern and met in a couple of weeks to begin our quilts. We try to get together once a month to sew together. My darling husband was very helpful while following me around trying to pick out the fabric. The pattern had the colors going from light to dark in the center. I had a braid half done when the realizatation hit as to what I had done. I have found that many times happy accidents happen :-). It was coming along so well that it grew from a lap quilt to a Qeen/King.

    Very pretty, looks like a warm quilt to cuddle up under when it's cold outside.
