A little quilting today

 I felt like doing some crazy quilting today and that is just what I did.  I finally put the Irish Chain on the frame.  I made this quilt over 10 years ago for my mother in law.  When we moved to the house we live in now, I had just finished the top and then we started construction on the house.  I was in a bin in the basement for over 10 years.  I thought it had gotten thrown out but was pleasantly surprised when my husband found it.  Now my mother in law is no longer with us.  But I think she would have liked it.  She was a sweet heart and I do miss her.  I smile when I see this quilt because I think of her.

The pictures doesn't show very well.  I have not natural light in my quilting room.  But you get the idea....It was a bit of quilting therapy today.

  4. Your quilting blows me away... I think I'm missing the gene for great feathers and quilting designs... but I am trying! And, I know you've had your long arm way less time than I have. Sigh....

  5. It's beautiful. I was looking hard to see if you marked your quilt. I see a little pink in spots. So a little marking, but not lots. Wonderful inspiration.
