I found this pattern in the Australia Patchwork and quilting magazine, Pioneer
Braid by Bev Darby in September 2005 issue. It was very difficult to match the
seams when joining the braided strips due to the one bias edge of the pattern
template. I really love the end result and if I make this pattern again will
just sew it onto a foundation fabric to prevent stretching.I used thick
batting and bought new flannel for the back,which makes the quilt super-soft
and warm. It is so cosy and warm under the quilt that I didn't need to use my
electric blanket so far this winter. The cat and the dog loves it too, I have
to compete with them to use my own quilt.
What makes this quilt extra special for me, is that my whole family helped to
tie the quilt, even the men! So a whole lot of love went into this quilt.
