    Irish chain....quilted by Heather

    I needed a gift for our neighbors wedding reception. It is this evening. I had planned for over a month about making this quilt. Had the fabric picked out and slowly worked on it(very slowly...lol). So, last night I had the quilt on the frame and it was a little over half done. I had to finish quilting it, trim it, bind it, and wrap it. I worked late last night and got it done!!! Yeah!!! I was a little worried I couldn't get it done. So, after it was done, I got to see the back. I just love looking at the backs of quilts. The quilting usually shows up so well and you get to see the quilting design. Well, I love the back more than the front....hahaha.
    I hope the neighbors enjoy their new quilt.

    What lucky neighbors you have. I'm sure they will love it. You certainly had your work cut out for you in such a short time. Sounds like something I would end up doing. Seems like I too am doing things at the last available minute. Thanks for sharing
