I think it's quite obvious why I've called this the 'braidadelic quilt'! 

I love the braid pattern and the bright colours of the Amy Butler Soul Blossoms prints.

I also used one of the prints on the back and for the binding, which I got from ChristaQuilts:

For the braids I mostly followed this tutorial

Although I chose not to trim the braids but sewed them together as they were, just pinned them right sides together and sewed a straight line 1'4" away from where you would trim the triangles...

and then had fun cutting them off afterwards. Seemed quicker and easier that way!

For the quilting I did straight diagonal lines to the middle and then went back the other way, it was fun!

This quilt makes me silly happy! It is only small but makes a fun little playmat or pram quilt for a wired baby ;)

I think I'm going to display this at the PTA summer fair where I shall be selling my makes... urm better get back to making then!

This is the third finish off my FAL list - so glad it is giving me some focus!!
