What materials did you use? This one is an actual kit I purchased when on Vacation - Wasn't ready to pick colors yet. Decided on hand quilting - still have 3/8 to go.

What are you most proud of? Most of the strips came out the same length. The shortest - is now on the back.

I love the colors you used and the design is terrific!

Beautiful. How wide are the color strips and the black strip?

The pattern can be found in Jane Hardy Miller's book "French Braid quilts" Finished Braid sizes are 1 1/2"x6 1/2" - with 1/4" black strip between. You can use pre-cut 2 1/2" strips - the braids will be a little larger.
