    I just intro'd myself - but had to take a new picture of my first quilt. I decided on a french braid (found a library book) - which made the project look easy! Hahaha - I didn't read past the first page or two before I started and when I got to the "trim" each braid part - wow - that was a real challenge to me!

    But overall, I'm happy with it. Now, just finished a larger project and getting it ready - I think I'm going to try some simple handquilting and see how that goes. Wish me luck!

    Wow, that looks really great! B&W quilts are more challenging than they seem, yours is excellent. Great design.

    anything with bias pieces [after the trim, the entire edge is bias] is a real challenge for a first quilt. you did a wonderful job! and welcome to the QB from MN.
