Anyway, back to our hunt. We each had selected the quilt layout we would do and had to find our fabrics. Now a French Braid can take anywhere from 11 to 14 different fabrics just for the braid and accent colors and then you have the braid separator fabrics and the borders. Here are the fabrics I chose. The picture does not do them justice. Everyone selections were different and we are going to have some really nice quilts - but man were we tired.
I also found a Kaleidoscope ruler to use in cutting out my fabrics for the KScope quilt I am making. Interesting ruler - but looks kind of complicated. Any of you every use this ruler?
