    Irish Chain

    I have not posted in awhile but I just finished my first Irish Chain. Sorry the pic is a little blurry.
    I am waiting on a couple of stencils I ordered before I start to hand quilt
    I made it for my king size bed but I think I might give it to my sister when it is finished. She just went thru a devestating divorce after 27 years of marriage. I hope to maybe cheer her up alittle.

    What a wonderful thought. I didn't even think of him never sleeping under it. **
    Thank you all for your kind words
