    Kevin and Julie

    Triple Irish Chain, I wanted something old-fashioned as that is the type of girl Julie is. With more modern colors for Kevin. Machine pieced and hand quilted. (I really was going to machine quilt it ( I did), get it out the door before Christmas, didn't happen and it took 2 days to take out the machine stitches!) LOL, but that is OK, I love it now and if they don't, I'll gladly take it back!! In the mail tomorrow as a belated Christmas gift LOL

    I took my first class in January 2012, this is my 27th quilt!! Retirement is great LOL

    I don't think you will get this beautiful quilt back. Kevin & Julie will love this gorgeous quilt. Congratulations on your 27th quilt in such a short time. Enjoy your retirement!

    Thank you so much. I love it and hope to find it. It would be perfect for an up coming quilt that I hope to do. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

    Love your quilt. I have been working on my double Irish Chain for years because it was hand pieced and now being hand quilted.

    That is so pretty. I am sure she will love it. It looks so soft and snuggly. My grandson (he is 11) only likes hand quilted quilts..says the ones on the machine are to stiff! Sigh
