    I thought it was just a modified french braid 'cause I wasn't changing directions or putting in a big center block. After reading some posts on this board, I found out it was an actual pattern: Friendship Braid. Uhmmmm, imagine that, because I'm making it for some longtime family friends who are getting married in July . . . :thumbup: Did this as a kind of quilt-as-you-go, quilting the "braids" with SID and then adding/quilting the sashing. Now all I have to add the drops and quilt those.

    So pretty!! I did the same thing once, I modified a pattern I saw in a picture thinking I so smart, only to find out the pattern I made already had a name, and a pretty popular one at that!! LOL Oh well guess we won't be making our millions off our "inventions" :)

    What a lovely wedding present. I still have a quilt that was made for me when I married. That was more than 30 yrs ago and I still cherish it. Maybe more so because everyone connected to the quilt time has died.
    This quilt is beautiful.
