Hi Gammy, good to hear from you. I've never made the French Braid pattern, but I've always admired it. I hope some of the other readers will be able to help you.
Cheerio for now

Gammy, I have seen this pattern several times but never knew the name of it. Thanks for enlightening me.

I think I would carry through on the butterfly theme and quilt a border design with butterflies and/or flowers down each column. Or, if I decided to go an easier route I would simply make some oval shapes down each column. Either way, I would maintain the column design of the pattern.

Hope this helps. Good luck with your quilting. If you could post a picture when you are done, I would love to see it.

Hope this helps.
