    Blue Irish Chain top finished

    Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions from my posting http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...n-t219575.html
    I've never done mitered corners before. I did add a white inner border and carried the "chains" out to their "points." I put one border on upside down and redid 3 of the corners, but it's done and I'm done for the day. It's both wider and longer than my design board. Was supposed to be a queen size. Thanks for looking!

    The mitered corners are great. Love the fussy cuts and the two tones ( blue and white). It is stunning.
