The Supper Quilt and French Braid Quilt fabric selections

We are getting ready for a retreat.  Mary, one of our many talented teachers in our group, will be teaching the French Braid Quilt pattern.  These are my selections for the quilt.  I'm going with my Japanese fabrics.  

These below are my friend Sheelah's fabrics.  

This is the Supper Quilt made by a man.  There are 55,000 1/2 inch squares.  The back fabric is hand dyed.  The front fabrics are hand dyed also.  It is a beautiful quilt on display at the Mt. Washington Spring Festival.  There is a quilt show next door with 2, 200 year old quilts that are amazingly well preserved.
