Hand dyed cotton batiks Lilac cotton print
What was your inspiration?
Saw this pattern in a quilt at a quilt show. i sketched out the 'pattern', went home and 'worked it out' in muslin to get the correct size pieces. I think there is a book on the market for "French Braid" quilts also. This top is patiently waiting to be hand quilted. I can't get at it right now, but wanted to share the lovely hand dyed batik colors and quilt pattern.
What are you most proud of?
The hand dyed batik color selections. The camera does not do them justice. One color flows into another in a rainbow effect. The 'rows' of french braid begin from the center lilac squares and are 'braided' to the bottom of the rows where they end in a lilac half square.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This pattern is based on the traditional "Log Cabin" pattern. It is an extremly EASY pattern. The top shown is king size.
