    I just finished this quilt -- I've been hoarding a charm pack of Fresh Air by Chez Moi, for Moda for a few years now. The batik brown and beige are from my stash. The pattern is an adaptation of Chain Link (I purchased the pattern from a blogger, but after reading directions, I decided to make it with strip piecing, as that's my preferred method. I also set the blocks differently from the original pattern.)

    The quilting is just a loose stipple with a variegated thread by sulky. It was fast and easy to fmq. This one is going in our TV room.

    Oh, I like it. Love the fabrics but really like the open feeling the light fabric creates.

    Terrific way to show off a collection of fabric.
    I might steal the idea too.

    I like it. I have never seen that pattern before. I like your meandering. It is very curvatious.

    I love it - if I look at it one way, the cream chains are dominant then if I shift my gaze, the browns spring to the front. Cool! :thumbup:

    Very pretty! Would put it on my list of ones to make, but I need to live to be at least 250 to make the ones on there now!
