    Double Irish Chain Top Finished

    I finished this today and are quite happy with this one. It is now ready to be sent off for quilting. Thought I would send it off and get it quilted professionally as I want to use this on my own bed. Made this to keep, love using white fabric. Thanks for looking.

    Very nice -- I have a top like that hiding somewhere in my sewing room! Had to check to see if it wandered off to your house.

    There is something timeless about the Double Irish Chain pattern. Such pretty contrasting fabric. Hope you enjoy it when finished for years to come.

    beautiful, the white looks so crisp and clean
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
