Lynn, Very pretty!  I've seen French Braid table runners, but this is the first French Braid Quilt I've seen and your color choices make it special indeed!

love the quilt.  I have a pattern for a strip club quilt that was similar but looked very plan.  This truly gives me some ideas on ways to spice it up. Awesome.

Uh Oh, a purple quilt, don't let Judy or Nana see it, they are the purple thieves in the night. You may need a watch dog.

Great quilt and I love the pattern and the colors

Wow I love it! I have never seen a French braid quilt. I am a new quilter and have been looking for helpful sites and blog to share information, quilt patterns and fabric ideas.  I will keep this pattern in mind. I found a great website where you can download quilt patterns that are unique and creative downloadable quilt patterns.  In fact, they have a great selection of all types of quilt patterns, kits and just about everything.  The site is http://www.toadusew.com. I will have to be look for a French braid quilt pattern now.

I made a French Braid two years ago, probably one of the prettiest quilts to make. And great exercise. Sew. Press. Sew. Press. Sew. Press. It's a pattern that requires attention to color, and attention to sewing.

Beautiful quilt!! This pattern is new for me, too. The graduated colors are great. Another on for my list of wishes. Thanks for the inspiration!
