    Braids on Parade, finally finished and on the bed!

    Thanks to all of you and your positive response on my first quilt, I thought I would see what you thought of my second project. My husband picked the pattern and the colors for this one so all of that credit goes to him. Used the Northcott Stonehenge warm stone colors. Please forgive the cell phone pics.

    Just noticed I didn't have the binding on in these pics. If you'll just put the backing material on in your mind when you look at the pics that would be awesome

    Just lovely, you write that "My husband picked the pattern and the colors for this one..." Please tell us, did you actually get him into a Quilt Fabric Shop? Or did he have a catalog in his hands? Or shopping from an online source with great photos? tell us how you got him involved so successfully. thanks.
    My fabric talks to me.

    Very pretty. Great job and so straight! I took a class to do a french braid tablerunner. It was hard to keep the braids straight!

    yonnikka, I have to be honest with you, my husband sews for a living. He does custom auto upholstery. He is known at one of the fabric shops in town that also has quilting materials as the guy that has the hot rod shop. He went into the quilt shop with me to pick out the fabric after I showed him a few different patterns on line. He has a much better eye for color than I do so I usually will tap into him for feedback on my color choices. Keep in mind this is only my second quilt I have made, check out my previous posts for my first quilt.
