A quilt block that takes its name from a fancy hairstyle, yes, please! The French Braid block is a classic quilt block that gives the illusion of woven strands, and even though it looks quite intricate, we guarantee that it is easy enough for the very beginner quilter.

This quilt block can be used to make a repeat pattern and joined together with our Easy Cover Strip method to make a stunning quilt-as-you-go quilt! So, what are you waiting for? Check out our free tutorial on how to make this block!

If you're joining in with our QAYG-ALONG you'll need to make 2 French Braid blocks.

Below is the requirements list to make 1 block, you'll need to multiply what's on the list by 2 except for the starting triangle because you'll get 2 triangles from the 4" square when it's cut on the diagonal.

The French Braid also looks great with every piece in a different fabric for a scrappy look, we can't wait to see what you do with your block!

Don't forget to use #PatternPooleQAYGalong2021 when posting your photos on social media.

Follow the YouTube video to make your block. I hope that you love making this block as much as I did!
