    this will be my "version" of the french braid. i can't decide if i want to put the stripe in or leave it out. i do plan to use the stripe as a border. i like it both ways. what do you think?

    Both are nice but I like it without the border inbetween the best. This is really nice and your piecing looks great!

    Yup, I agree. I think the stripe will look great as a border along the outside too.

    Stripe would look better as a border. Beautiful combination of colors.

    I like it better without the strip. But instead use it on the border.
    Just a thought :lol:

    I like it without the stripe in the middle. Maybe as a border would be better. Very pretty.

    I agree with others - no stripe, but perhaps as part of the border. I've yet to do one of these quilts, but it is definitely on my to do list.

    I like the stripe--it makes it pop.
