    My French Braid quilt is finished

    I had a 3 yard piece of batik in my stash for several years waiting for the right fabrics and pattern to come along to use it and here it is! The picture of the whole quilt shows more yellow than it really is but these are cell phone pictures so please be patient with me about them. The actual colors lean more towards blue. I love the bright colors. The top is finished and the binding will be the saphire blue the separating strips are made of. I had about a fat 1/8th left over from 3 yards so I used my fabric very well! Thanks for looking.

    Very pretty.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    It sure was worth the wait! It reminds me of an Easter basket with all those lovely pastels. Great finish. Thanks for sharing.
