    Need to do quilting on two braids and then attach. Great way to use scraps. Block is from Quilter's Cache... http://www.quilterscache.com/B/BraidBlock.html If you haven't shopped her block pattens you need to take a peak.

    Not hard at all. If block is hard I probably wont do it. All done in strips w/one small black square on the end of one strip.

    If block aint easy I aint gonna do it!

    Love this! Great way to use up those small scraps that you just have lying around from other projects. Yours has turned out great! Thanks for posting a picture.

    Now I'm confused - what is the white fabric (or batting) showing behind the braids and why did you say above that you still had to quilt two of the braids, "then attach"? I was hoping this was quilt as you go......
