Default Braid Quilt

I'm finally getting some time to get caught up on finishing the tops I made this summer.

This was a pattern I saw for a beaded wristband, and wanted to see if I could adapt it for a wall hanging.

The border was put on like a reverse facing, and then I stitched in the ditch down the middle of the braid to quilt the border.

This shows the colors better - (though it also shows my wonky quilting better too LOL!)

I really like this. It looks 3d like its wrapping around. I like the braid on the edges too.

Lovely! I wonder what it would look like in shades of green? I think it would look like leaves going up a vine.

VERY Pretty! Haven't seen this pattern before, I like this design. It could be made in so many different color combinations, it would be gorgeous. Thanks for showing it to us.
