Diary of a French Braid Quilt

This is a fun pattern I am working on called French Braid. Begin with the center square, brown and green floral. Add strips to each side....Scroll down for more....

Continue to add more strips in the color progression:

Keep adding:

Then you will end up with one panel! After doing 4 panels, I will add seperator bands and hopefully by early fall I will show you the finished quilt! This is an easy pattern to follow, the hardest part is picking out the fabric colors, but that can be fun too!

Life Goes On.... And we're lovin' It!

Oh what a busy month it has been! We had a great week-end with our daughter and her family, as it was "community" day here in our little corner of the world. Charley was in charge of the car show again, while my time was filled up with our annual quilt show. Lots of work setting it up and taking down, but many hands make light work!
We enjoyed the time with Lisa and Brady and our special grandchildren, we are so blessed!
Here are Ryley and Brenna mastering the climbing wall!

And of course Maya had fun too! It was a great day...
