    inspired by postings on this forum for 'french braid quilts' I had to try it.
    Not crazy about color choice. Made this one for my cousin for Easter.
    She called me today to tell me that every time she looks at the table it makes her happy, cheerful and smile.
    so, glad to make her days happy!

    french braid table runner, without binding.
