    In The Pink ......... a Baby Irish!

    Here's a quilt that I just made for a sweet new Miss in my "adopted" family!
    Size is 40"x50" with the 9P strips being cut at 2".
    No fussy cutting for the print centres, just cut into 5" squares to work with the Irish chain.

    Thanks for looking ... I had fun making it and then quilting it the last few days.

    I absolutely love it. What a cool way to use that bear fabric. It would have stumped me and I would have just put it as the border.

    It is so pretty.

    Wonder where I got the idea?
    Thanks!!! ... for sharing your "good" eye! No, there was nothing in my stash that would work, then I went into the jobber and it pretty much jumped at me saying, OKSGlad would approve!
    I have a hard time using something for the binding that is not in the quilt ... so this has me convinced, it's OK!

    Thank you!! I bought it on a whim, and all that was left was a small piece of it, about 20" ... I wanted enough for the backing of a baby quilt! But because I liked it, I took the small piece, not sure what I would use it for. I did some pretty tight measuring before I could decide on the best size for the cuts, and the whole quilt. And then went at it with the chalk marker first, to confirm all was going to work.



    All the fabric came from my stash, except the backing, and the binding.
    And I had a perfect backing pink print in my stash that should have been the backing too, if I'd "thought" before I made ... a quilt finishing at 40" just does not work for backing that is only 42". Well, just too close for comfort for me!
