I took a class to learn how to do French Braids which I found out are surprisingly very easy. The instructor supplied the fabric for the braids but no border. After I made the braids I set them aside for several months because I was afraid to do the trimming. It sounded so intimidating. And I figured that lining up all those points would be a nightmare. When I signed up to take another class I challenged myself to finish two UFOs before the class so I finally got around to trimming and sewing the braids together. And it was easy! I felt so silly for waiting all that time. I tried out many fabrics and patterns before I could settle on a border and I am so glad I waited because this border suits this quilt perfectly. And I love the colors!!!! It is a very HAPPY quilt! This quilt will probably stay with me. I don't think I can give it away. It makes me smile too much!

Hi there! My name is Norma and this is my quilting/sewing blog. I never thought I would have a blog but here I am. I invite you to join me in sharing my joy as I discover the world of color and patterns. I've gone back in time a bit in my journal to show how I got to where I am now. You might want to start at the end and go forward. Please bear with as I figure out the idiosyncrasies of creating a blog. I'm still working on the layout.
