    Hi everyone,

    Here are a couple of the quilts I completed recently. I wanted to try making braids. I used 2x5 pieces and trimmed the sides before adding the white. The braided baby quilt was made from scraps and stash fabrics. I used a puffy, polyester batting.

    The bargello quilt I made for myself. I bought the butterfly fabric years ago and one afternoon last summer, I just put the fabric on the floor and threw FQs from the stash at it until I had enough to start cutting strips. Its my own design, just random strips. It was a lot of fun to put together!

    I quilt them on my HQ Fusion and Prostitcher. Ah, such great therapy!

    If throwing FQ's helps you come up with something that pretty I'll be giving it a try! :-D

    Wow...

    Love the colors! They seem to really complement each other, and the butterflies are so realistic looking. Very, very nice!

    Very nice, very colorful. I was wondering what to do for a baby quilt I need to get made for a June baby, the braids are just the thing! I haven't tried bargello but am very impressed by your vision with the butterflies - wonderful!
