    Thank you for your kind words ... I quilt for the pure joy and love of it. My goal is that before I die, every one of my friends will have one of my quilts....I keep making new friends so the way I look at it, I'm going to be quilting a long time... :)


    French braid is not hard to do at all ... it's a half log cabin block and it goes together really quick. I made this one while my husband was away for a week so I moved my sewing into the dining room and whenever I had a spare minute I'd add to the braids, before I knew it, I was done... :)

    That's stunning!! I've made one of these quilts and I love this pattern. I'm crazy about the colors you used. Just beautiful!! :)

    I found it a bit challenging myself, but I'm determined to make another one for myself. My new DIL got the first one. :) There's a picture of mine around here somewhere...

    I like that! Those colors give it a southwest kind of style.

    Hi estherblair,

    The center blocks are 8 3/4" and the strips are 2 1/2".... it's really easy and it goes fast. :)

    I have made a table runner like that. Are the brades quilted when you finish? The table runner was. If so what thickness and kind of batting did you use? Thanks..Sharon

    Thank you all for your wonderful compliments. :)

    Joy, I didn't use jelly rolls for this quilt, I bought fat quarters for the braids themselves and yardage for the sashing and borders. The center blocks were a fabric I had in my stash. :)

    Your quilt is amazing! I know you gave a rather simplified explaination of it's construction, but I'm still scratchin' my head.

    It really is beautiful!
