French Braid

I am very pleased to say that I have finally finished the French braid bed topper that I have been working on since August last year.   I have put it on the backburner too many times in order to make other items.   Generally as a rule I do not like sewing hanging around in the WIP stage for too long but this one just seemed to slip "through the cracks".   The photo below shows it hanging on my clothesline

And the photo below shows it on my parents' bed for which it was made

I was relieved to see that it was a good fit as their bed is smaller than ours and I was "guesstimating" the measurements.

Now onto the green challenge and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

That looks great! A clothesline - I haven't seen one in ages. They are so useful for photographing quilts!
