    It is beautiful! Mine has run into a snag and I will be spending the cooler weather working on it. Who knows I have a few quilts that I may send out for quilting something new for me to do.
    You do lovely work and a nice twist with the stars in the middle of the chains. Love it.

    You do such a good job of balancing all the fabrics that are repeated.

    Love those stars in the connecting spaces. Irish Chains have always been a favorite of mine & the stars just give it an extra added touch that makes it so special.

    Lovely quilt. Great colors. I've been thinking about doing a double Irish chain, but the open space bothered me. What a good idea to put a star into it.

    I love the addition of stars. That quilt just says "Come snuggle up in me!".

    Beautiful quilt and I think the stars really add to it. I have printed off her pattern but never started and now I think you have inspired me to pull that pattern out. Love your fabrics you used. So pretty and colorful.
