    My son likes the french braid pattern but wanted his quilt to be a little quieter so the alternating panels are forest fabric and Stonehenge textures. He also wanted it large so this is a whopping 90" x 100!" I am taking a break from earth tones and am now working on a warm wishes with aqua.

    PLEASE show us the Warm Wishes quilt with aqua just as soon as you can. That is going to be one of the next quilts that I make and aqua is my favorite color!

    I love stepping out of my comfort zone in colors. So far, so good!

    That's a very fine braid variant. You get me thinking about what to do when the quilt show I'm working towards is over.

    I love the French Braid pattern. You did a very nice variation for your Son. The colors are very soothing.
