    So I have friends that are getting married on Oct. 9 and I want to make a quilt for them - well I just found out about this wedding about a week ago - I started making a log cabin quilt but the fabric I used wasn't working - so I decided to can that idea and went to the LQS and decided to do a double irish chain quilt. Thursday I picked out fabric and today starting the cutting and piecing - just wanted to see if I can do this before the wedding - so I will post my progress as I go along. Here is todays blocks - I have completed 8 of these and have the fabric and strips sewn for another 8 so tomorrow back at it. Wish me luck... :thumbup:

    Great job! Beautiful fabrics!

    If it were me doing it, I'd most likely get the top done, but not the quilting. Of course I do most of my quilting by hand too so that takes longer. (Well, not really, because if I try to do it by machine there's all the UNdoing to do!)

    The colors are great.

    I thought I was the only one who did things at the last minute. Nice to meet someone else who does.

    It will be beautiful and only you will know if you can get it finished in time.
    I seem to work pretty good under pressure.
    Good luck and just keep going.

    Well, made some progress on Saturday - Sunday woke up with a migraine and halted all work - it is now 4:00 a.m. and I am wide awake - no sewing until everyone is out of bed. I will try to post progress later today.

    I was always under the impression that you have a year to get a wedding present to the couple, so don't rush it!
