    Looking at this one makes me feel a tenderness for the past. It's wonderful that you have this.

    That is an excellent idea! I am going to do that -- otherwise, how will my kids know anything about it?

    I love it! I have never seen the straight stitch used in the large white areas before, only patterns with a circular look. I like the straight stitch look, clean and simple. Beautiful quilt! Thanks for sharing.

    Seeing this makes me want to make an Irish chain quilt. My ancestors came to the US from Ireland in 1720. Maybe I will make one for each of my children!
