    HI GagaSmith, thank you for your compliment, it sure feels wonderful when I read everyone's compliments. I feel the stress of my sewing is all worth it now. LOL. I'm always afraid of sewing the parts crooked or wasting fabrics, I feel when a person makes a quilt, it should be done at it's best. I'm slow at sewing, but it's working out, so back to sewing. Thanks again for the nice compliment.

    I have this same fabric, and I love it! I have kept it for a special project, and it hasn't hit me just yet!
    HI Mariposa, I think I will keep it simple, but I really would like to use the embroidery. I'll have to embroider the design and see how it looks, before I make my final decision. I fell in Love with this fabric, I too wanted to keep it for a special project. This Irish Chain has been on my mind for at least 4 yrs, and now I'm finally doing it, and it's coming out very well. Thank you for the compliment and your input.
