It's pink month at the scrappy rainbow challenge. I hardly had any pink scraps, so I ended up with just a little (16" square or so) doll quilt:
I love braided quilts -- in fact one of the very first quilts I made was a braided one. (long pause while I look for a photo, realize I don't have a photo, go take a photo and upload it...)
I took a class to learn how to do this; everything about this early quilt is a little wonky -- especially the quilting -- and I'm not thrilled with the pink fabric in the sashing, but I still like the overall effect.
I know there are a couple of books out on braided quilt techniques -- have you tried any of them?
