I just wanted to write a quick post to say a massive thank you for all your feedback so far on whether to keep the braids or make them into squares.
So far, 8 lovely readers have said “keep the braids”, 7 (4 blog readers and 3 others) have said “go for squares!”
I have also had some great suggestions about trying out different border thicknesses or changing the border to red or grey (advice I’ll definitely take when it comes to framing the central piece).
Still undecided, I have spent the last few hours playing with a few more ideas… do you want to see?
Option 1: Go for the squares.
Option 2: Cut each braid into 3.
Option 3: Keep the braids.
Option 4: Run an extra braid across the centre – I was originally going to cut this up to try out the square idea.
Is there a clear winner for you?
Maybe I just need to make 4 quilts!

I LOVE the braids – really shows off the actual patchwork!
I like option 4. It looks great. 🙂
I’m partial to Option 5. That would be the four-quilt option. They’re all very nice, too hard to choose. But if I *had* to pick from 1 – 4, I’d go for #1, with smaller white areas.
#3 first, then #4
I LOVE the squares x
still squares for me…what a dilemma B)
4 quilts definitely 😉
I like Option 4 as well–it is interesting and modern looking.
I like option 2, then 4, then 3 then 1! But you should do the one you like the best, I don’t think you’ll regret whichever one you choose. And like you said, you can always make 4… 🙂
Too many choices! I like the squares best but they all look good
Yep I like option 4. Good luck deciding. Best wishes, Carina
They are all beautiful, but I like the squares in option 1.
I definitely like option 2 best! With that option you can still clearly see they’re braids but the white in between makes it less busy.
I really like number 4 (and as much white as I use in every quilt, this feels odd to ask), but have you considered a color other than white for the sashing?
I’ve gone for white borders as I really wanted the colours to be zingy and stand out. X
Ohhh I think option 4 not too much white or too busy.
