    Friendship Braid Quilt for BIL for Christmas

    Made this friendship braid quilt for my brother-in-law for Christmas. He's an avid hunter/fisherman and the fabrics and quilting are all about that.

    I rented time on the LAQ to do the quilting last Wednesday. That worked out well because it was the only day on my vacation that it rain - good day to be inside.

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

          Nancy, is this the first quilt you've done at your LQS? Love the pattern. It's so appropriate for that quilt.

            No, 2nd. The 1st was the quilt I made for my SIL. That's in my gallery somewhere.

              WOW!! I love the quilting you did. Did you follow jenny's tutorial using the jelly roll?

                    Good Morning, Nancy
                    Love the colors you have chosen; lends itself so well to the braid and the quilting design. Aren't you glad you have that out of the way? You did a great job!
                    hugs!!

                          I made the top to my first friendship braid quilt this weekend. And, I started my second one (which is a baby quilt). I'll give my try at posting pics of them when I get them all finished.
