Default Christmas gift quilt

Hello Lovely Board!

I love making quilts for my mother in law. She loves quilts and and so naturally I love making them for her.

With all the challenges of getting fabric last year, I decided to gamble with ordering a bolt of calico from Marshall’s Dry Goods. I say gamble because I had never purchased their fabric. Turns out, the fabric was great and I ordered more.

Because I was making a king size quilt, I needed a lot of fabric, therefore ordering an entire bolt made sense. For the background, I used Kona white from a bolt I had on hand.

The pattern is a simple Irish chain and I quilted it on my domestic machine with a walking foot.

Thanks for looking!

You did a very lovely Irish Chain on this quilt for your MIL. I am sure she will just love this Christmas gift.
