Double Irish Chain

Yeah I know, the pictures kind of suck. 1000 apologies but I just had to show my quilt top. Mine. It belongs to me. I did this for me and it felt good. For me, not for the film, not for the expo or anyone else. Little 'ole me. I started about 4:30 yesterday and finished about 12:30 this morning (most parts had been cut out). Then I wrote for another hour. Amazing!!!!!!!


The color isn't the greatest and it's bigger than I thought it would be. We'll do the borders at the next meet. The size is called twin coverlet. Good gift size. It can cover the average person's parts while watching the tellie. I will make another for a friend's 40th birthday next year.

I am so proud of myself. Reading quilt directions takes a degree but I got through it. I think when I make it again, I'll have more confidence.

It's a Double Irish Chain because of the outer row and inner row. I love this pattern now. Had meatloaf, brown rice, and stir fry veggies for dinner. I think I'll needle felt now.

oh Wendy- it is gorgeous! I'm so glad it's for you- I think making something for ourselves once in awhile is good for our souls. I really, really love this- I've tried quilting and I am horrible at it so I know how much work and patience this piece took- it is fabulous!!!!

Wendy - your quilt is stunning... I can't believe you made it in an 8hour stretch ... it would take me weeks, once I took weeks to learn how to quilt!
You look to be a first class quilter :O)
