    thanks barn,
    no i didn't buy that book, but i found an old quilting book in a used book store and this was just one of many very cool patterns. i had to look at the quilterscache, though to really be able to figure it out. they have the best instructions as far as my little brain is concerned. :roll:

    Very pretty! Shadow Dancer is a wonderful inspiration to many! Isn't this board great? We all bounce off of each other and create these unique masterpieces! I can't wait to see it quilted!

    Well, it happened again.......another beautiful quilt that is going on my "MUST DO THIS ONE" list. I really like this design, must have missed Shadow's interpretation--I'm sure it was beautiful as well

    hi ceannastahr, thanks. to find the pattern go to quilter's cache and look up BRAID. i don't know what the page number is. they don't show it with the cornerstone (my yellow block) but it's easy to add that. once you get the hang of it, it's like doing a very long one sided log cabin block.
    good luck. can't wait to see yours.

    Your braid is beautiful. I find it hard to believe though that it is EASY!!!

    Seeing that braid quilt made me think of Lin. She doesn't post anymore. Wonder what happened to her?

    Well this post made me go from just look in the window to coming in and joining the group. :D I have been looking in since about October. I have learn a few thing helpful to improve my quilting and have seen some BEAUITFUL quilts.

    I to have been inspired by Shadowdancer to make a french braid. It has been added to my want to make list. I have already bought the fabric to make it but alas I have four quilts in process to finish first. I'm hoping to make it for a Christmas gift.

    Now to the reason I jumped in. I found on the web instructions (word doc) for a table topper make in the same pattern as Shadowdancers french braid. I don't think it's copywrited since it was a free word doc. I don't remember what website I downloaded it from.

    I am attaching the work document I downloaded. Hope it helps.
