Mystery Quilt-Along Step 4

The fourth step to my Mystery Quilt-Along is finally done thanks to the low humidity of the past couple of days during which time I spent many hours happily playing in my upstairs sewing studio.


Mystery Quilt-Along Step 4
After Step 4, the quilt top should measure 66 1/2" long x 62 1/2" wide.  We're getting there!

I decided on a French braid border and for those of you who have never made one, you'll find that it is surprisingly easy to do.  

Below is one of the many links I found on how to go about constructing a pieced French braid.




And just click HERE for the link to the downloadable PDF file containing the photo and instructions.


Have fun and we'll see you 'soon' with Step 5.




Happy stitching!

I am loving your House Mystery Quilt and hope to still be able to download the patterns and make it when we get home in a few weeks. Hubby and I have been travelling around Aussie for the past 6 weeks...

I love that, you need to put into a show some where. It would win!

Kaaren, I LOVE, LOVE this. I am always drawn to "neighborhood" house type quilts but this one is really striking. I like the primitive color scheme and the wonderful staggered flying geese. Great job as always.

Thank you so much for the beautiful pattern Kaarin. I'm one step behind, but I will get caught up!

I made a French braid quilt using French General fabrics and gave the quilt to my niece. I used the binding tool--it was ever so easy

I would stop where you are. The single color border really makes it pop - just as is :) Great job - a beautiful beautiful quilt!

I would love to know what the additional step would be. I would be happy making it larger, but will love it even if you stop where you are.
