Default Irish Chain

Made the quilt from Eleanor Burns' Irish Chain In a Day Book. I made the bedskirt (with inserts) and shams from my own pattern, but inspired by her pattern. The fabric is from MODA and it is the Morris Tapestry line (Strawberry Theif). I did all the piecing but sent the quilt out to my local LAQ. Hope you like it!

Beautiful!! How much fabric did you need to make the bed skirt? I've always wondered.
