Pioneer Braid Quilt

This quilt is a great way to use up scraps in a rainbow array of colors. The pattern was developed by Carol Scherer based on the traditional Pioneer Braid Quilt and published in Grandmother's Scrap Bag Favorites,  House of White Birches. I made it for my oldest sister Helen and her husband Chris Haller to express our appreciation for all their loving support of our two sons when they were away at Cornell University in frozen upstate New York. I made another one for my dear niece, Lorna Leedy, on the occasion of her marriage to Peter Maggio in July 2006.

(the quilting itself features pussy cats because Helen and Chris are real cat lovers)
