    Carole,
    This is very pretty. For those who do not know what you are trying to do ( I am one ) this is a very beautiful wall hanging !!! Don't be too hard on yourself !!f Unless you are wanting to enter a contest... Great job on color choices and wonderful design !!

    Thanks for your kind comments - I made a braid to test the construction and size using 2 1/2" by 6" scraps. That was way too big for what I wanted so used a 1 1/2 by 4, I think!!!! Don't even have any scraps of is as I used what was left on a strip across the back to add interest! The little quilt was sent on to my daughter so don't have it to check!
    Happy quilting!

    The border is beautiful and goes really well with the quilt. You did a great job on that one. Love the colours.
