I don't usually do much for Christmas, but this year I have made the cushion and now a wall hanging. A number of us at my afternoon group have made/are making Golden Plait by Marilyn Hornby. I believe it was in PP many years ago. Here is my version.

Thank you Eileen.....yes i did use a stencil...it's one of my favourites and I use it quite a lot! It's called "Promise corner" and I also used it for the butterfly shapes....I just drew the small ones and enlarged the others on the computer! Rx

That plait is lovely Margaret. It looks very complicated and lengthy to make. Is it? I do actually like sewing curves, or is it appliqued?

Beautiful quilt for a lucky little girl Rosemary.

Thank you for your kind comments.

An unusual construction as the outer edges are not enclosed on the back. Basically, the plait has a base of backing, wadding and a piece of vilene, or similar, and the applique shapes are fused to the vilene, then zig zag stitched around the outer edge. Normal stained glass technique using fusible bias binding machined in place.(QAYG) Then comes the tricky part - trim all round the outer shape as close as possible to the edge of the binding. Thank goodness for my Karen Kay Buckley scissors. Quite quick in the end.
