    Irish Chain with attempt at FMQ

    I like this quilt -- colors, design -- and tried FMQ with Celtic Knots in the "centers", and a sort of Celtic border. Had LOTS of trouble seeing the chalk lines for the knots...used chalk to mark on the dark fabric. And it was especially hard retracing the stitching where needed to get the over and under look.

    Anyway, after washing the crinkling hides most of the flaws (well, for my purposes)...I really like the back. Not sure how well it will show up here.

    love your color choice, and the extra backing design to give double design use
