French Braid for Norma

For the last week I have worked on a French Braid quilt that Norma pieced. It looks great, but I learn lessons on every quilt–or reinforce lessons I should have learned in the past. On this one I wish I had done more stabilization and maybe even some basting before I started any of the quilting. That helps keep vertical strip quilts square, and especially the French braids because all the piecing is on point. It is amazing though, how it all comes out right in the end when quilting with a longarm.

Here are some photos:

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
