I was inspired this week to make a quilt that had a braided look. (I think I may have been making way too many braided ribbon barrettes lately.) The rows came out exactly how I envisioned them, but now I am not quite sure what to do with them. Do I just trim them up, and add some sashing in between the rows, or do I try to connect the rows to give it more of a chevron look? My one issue is the fabric. It is made from flannel, receiving blanket to be exact and I don't want to manipulate it too much. I am afraid it might stretch or pucker. Right now it lays perfectly flat.
Well I guess it is off to the fabric store (with my little helper) to find some coordinating fabrics to try and make it work.
P.S. Yes I have been watching way too much Project Runway. I just can't help myself. :)
