Greetings Everyone,

Well I got a jump start on my holiday quilts.

I did sloth's feather braid block, I did change it a bit

I used three colors not four and cut the stripes 3inches by 8.5
The square was cut 5.5
and the triangles were a 9inch square cut in half

All in all I think it is the most striking quilt I have done yet.
Is my 7th completed and 9 total (I donated two twin tops locally)

The computer plan


Complete quilt just under 80in square

Thanks for looking
well and wonderment

Like seeing how it all came together, especially since you limited the fabrics in number and variety. Gives it a much more unified appearance. May try it in blues and greens on white as my next quilt. Great job!
