Santa Ana friendship braid

I am relaxing on holiday at the moment in Cornwall (I will be back to business on the 20th August) and am taking the opportunity to post some photographs of another customer quilt recently quilted.
This is a gorgeous friendship braid made by my good customer Helen, which she beautifully pieced with batiks and solids.  The green and lilac shades make a lovely combination.
Helen chose the "Santa Ana" design and a dark khaki thread which blends across the quilt colours just perfectly.
I think that the greens and purples look great together too.

Yes you are right Kay, it is the first time I quilted this design out, I have since quilted it again, and will post that quilt soon. It is a nice flowing design.
