Here is a peak at my French Braid quilt.  I have purchased the backing and batting and am ready to sandwich sometime this week.  As usual, my dilemma is HOW to quilt it.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I am anxious to use my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen as soon as I decide the quilting pattern.  This quilt is to be a graduation quilt for my grandson Alex who will graduate high school in 2013.  I completed two graduation quilts in the Hollow Cubes patterns for this years graduates, Jackie and Sarah. 
My major accomplishment this week was completing my Peaceful Pathways!  It is a stunning quilt, a beautiful free BOM by Esther Aliu.  I am struggling to keep up with the new BOM, Forget Me Not.  I am about halfway thru with my Peony block from last month.  Quiet time to hand applique has eluded me for the past couple of weeks.  We have been busy with some remodeling and decorating, but that is almost finished so I hope to catch up soon.  My choice for this months block is the Calla Lily which looks to be less labor intensive than the peony! 
Have a great week!

  1. Hi Pat what a great quilt for a grad I am sure it will be loved. An all over quilting pattern will probably be best to make sure it will withstand a teenager LOL.
