Got inspired to make a christmas quilt using these beautiful 2 1/2" strips that I bought last (?) year.
Next I had to decide what pattern to use. Didn't want to do another jelly roll race quilt and thought a French braid quilt would be a good use of the precut strips.
Here is the layout on my design board.
One braid partially done. I am loving how this looks!
One light to dark braid completed.
I finished the dark to light braid today. This will be the middle braid.
The center blocks are this beautiful leaf print that has silver outlines.
The small squares are moda's red grunge fabric by basic grey. The grunge prints are great blenders.
I love it when I happen to have fabrics in my stash that work together to make a gorgeous quilt! Most of the prints in the jingle pop have metallic silver accents so this quilt will be called Christmas Shimmer. So pretty!
My favorite way to express my creativity is with fabric. Join me as I share my journey with you. I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!
