    It actually was listed as "Friendship Braid" in the book Jelly Roll Quilts.

    It looks like something I'd like to do with scraps. I've done the braid before and had a hard time squaring it up. How did you square yours up?

    Kind of takes me back to the sixties... Like they say "If you can remember it... You wernt there". That would look great with an echo quilting.Far Out Man.

    Oooo, I love it! Even though it's scrappy all the colors go so well together. They're all subtle tones, nothing too bright. Very nice! How are you gonna quilt it?

    Very pretty. I am working on a braid border for a baby quilt and it seems to be taking me forever to get it to the right length. So I know that you have put a great deal of time into this lovely quilt

    It can also be used to make a beautiful border. And when I first started making quilts I made a 12 1/2" square of this pattern for my CW quilt using some pretty small pieces.
