FNWFS March 2015

Thanks to all the lovely ladies that I have joined to FNWFS tonight.
Hope you enjoyed a crafty evening.

Last night I worked on a boarder for the latest UFO quilt that I am attempting to finish.
This quilt just needs a little more width in the side boarders so it sits nicely on the bed.

So I set out to make a braided boarder!
I have not done one of these before, so off to YouTube I head and find myself a tut. 
The tut I found used triangles to make up the braid, which meant that I could use my new ruler which I purchased on a Bloggers get together recently.
The braid is coming along!

Hope you all had a good Friday Night
Hugs Sandra
