Over the years I've probably made 1,457 baby quilts. Yeah, so I might be exaggerating a little bit, but seriously, I've made a lot. I have a favorite pattern, which I will be sharing soon, that is a quilt-as-you-go blanket and it is super easy to make. It begins by cutting a stack of strips of fabric 3 inches wide. I can never remember how much I need, so I just start cutting. I always end up with a bunch left over. Over the years I've gotten quite a stack of left overs, which I always planned to turn into a bigger quilt. That hasn't happened yet.
So, I'm looking at all of these, and wondering what I could do with some of them. I played with them for a while. Then, I thought how pretty they would look all braided together. I had no particular end in mind, I just thought I'd braid some. So, I laid them out in a rainbow fashion. Yes, I know, in this pic I have the orange and red reversed, but I fixed that before I started :)
