Somewhere in the flux and flurry of Quilt Market suddenly I heard it make up its mind and speak to me. (Perhaps it took a few months to learn English?? haha since it's a FRENCH Braid-- pathetic I know....)
Textures! It wanted lots of texture. So I treated each band of the french braid uniquely. It is a lot of fun to try different things on quilts. A little free- motion, a little ruler work etc...
Here are a few more pics:
The diamonds (above) have a spiraling feather in them and the set in triangles (below) at the top and bottom of each braid are done with curved cross hatching.
I hope Nancy loves it! It was a lot of fun to quilt!
