Braiding

I  have eight of the braid blocks for Pattern Play finished.  I decided to wait and trim them to size when I'm ready to sew them together.  Once trimmed, the blocks have bias edges and could easily get distorted from handling.



This is my color palette for the quilt.  My inspiration was the Kona Sunset precuts but I did not need all the colors and the pattern requires more than a fat quarter of each anyway so picked out my favorites and got a half yard of each. 



These colors really pop, especially against the white and gray used as contrast.  I'm not keen on the name Pattern Play and am trying to think up something else.  Any suggestions?
