    French Braid - Quilted differently

    I just finished my UFO French Braid. In looking at a multitude of FB's, probably 95% of them are quilted SITD. Being as I'm not normal, LOL I wanted something different. Here's the results! I know, I was having too much fun with Queenie!!

    I like the movement it gives to the quilt. Nice job.

    Very pretty -- great movement in the quilting. I don't think I would have thought of feathers. I love the colors you used.

    I think your quilting adds a lot to this French Braid. The fabrics are beautiful, too. Great job!

    Very pretty quilt! French braid quilts scare me. Maybe some day I'll try to make one, just not now. I'm very happy to drool over others braids.

    Your quilting is beautiful, but what catches my eye are the gorgeous colors in your French braid.
