Braid Quilt

Here is where I am at with the braid quilt. I only noticed that the top corners are folded down on the rainbow one after I had the picture posted. I don't want to go all the way to the studio to take another one so you'll have to use your imagination to fold them back up. I have to decide how wide to make the sashing and borders. I might want an inner border using the colors in the braids, perhaps the rainbow one. I'm not sure if I will use the blue one because I don't want the quilt to be too wide and short. I will sew the blue one together and see how it looks.

Meanwhile, we are getting ready for a bit of a New Year's Eve party. We will snack and visit for the afternoon and evening and then near midnight we'll walk up the hill to the Stones. We will have a bonfire, a sip of Champagne to welcome in the new year and maybe a wiener roast if it's not too cold. The grandchildren will come in the afternoon so they will have time to ski and snowboard before it gets dark. I'll break out the snowshoes too but may use the excuse of cooking and entertaining to avoid any exercise. I'll start that in the new year. I have to be ready for the beach and a bathing suit in February. Now that's a sobering thought!

Woohoo! Fun in the snow for the kids.
I would not be fit enough for that!

I love the rainbow quilt, it is looking wonderful. I will have to have a serious play with mine!

Happy New Year Joyce, to you & all your family.

The braids look wonderful. I really like the idea of the different coloured ones, and the rainbow one. Can't wait to see it together.

Happy new year - it sounds like you will be having a fun one.

If you haven't already sewn the blue braid together could you use pieces from it for an inside border?
