    I made this quilt last year for my stepdaughter. I think I did the binding right at the beginning of the year, after Christmas visitors left. It is a generous queen-sized, although the measurements escape my memory at the moment. I had my LAQ quilt it and she did an awesome job, like always!
    This pattern was from EB QIAD, with some modifications. I did the seminole border, but changed the nine patches in the corners. I did the same border for my mom's quilt a few years ago...fun to make!

    Close-up of shamrocks, don't mind the piece of hair that was on the quilt! I just saw it on there tonight!

    Wow I really love both quilts, and especially the borders! Your LA did a fabulous job as well! Maybe I'll try an Irish Chain quilt, yours are certainly inspiring!
    Blessings,
