Well at long last my Blue Irish is done. I like to try to learn at least one thing with every quilt I make. I have a list this time:
1. Just because you test the pencil marker on a piece of fabric in a bowl of dish soap doesn't mean the very same pencil will come out in the wash.
2. A high loft batting is harder to sandwich with no wrinkles.
3. By the time you have sandwiched and taken it apart three times the glue will start to form cement like blobs.
4. After you have traced the quilt design 25 times, trust me you do have muscle memory. (See #1 for lesson regarding the pencil used.)
This quilt measures 96 X 96. The Irish Chain is side A and the sashed bricks is side B.
