    Thanks so much, Chele. Every quilt I make is a new challenge and a new experience. If I can do it, so can you. I've never taken a class but I've watched Alex Anderson and Elanor Burns shows. They have been very helpful.

    Whoops. Chele, forgot to answer your question. I did do the quilting but I have a new cheater friend. That was practice free motion quilting. I NEED much more practice and a class or two.

    Wow Jackie, I love your quilt! The color choices are very soft and it makes me want to steal it from you and put it on my bed. If you ever need to find it a home, let me know and I'll send you my address. :lol:

    Thank you, Sandpat. The fabric was from Elanor Burns. I kind of liked the idea of cheating on the border.

    That looks great! Not boring to me! And even if you quilt with white thread in the open sections, it will look wonderful!

    Keep up the good work! You are really producing a lot! (Making me look bad! I guess I am a slacker lately!)

    I love the Double Irish Chain quilt pattern! I made a few of them and played around with different borders. I gave away one of them to a good friend of mine who moved away to Toronto. I get to visit it when I go see her LOL

    Beautifully done. I have never seen an Irish chain in red and white!
    Great not only for Valentine's Day but for Christmas as well.

    Your work is wonderful. Be sure to post when you get it Quilted.
    Since the 14th is my Birthday, the Red and White really caught my eye.

    I love that colour combo. and the pattern is just stunning. I have only made 4 twin size quilts and the first 2 were single Irish chain and they were an Eleanor Burns pattern that was sooooo simple to follow. i love her directions they are perfect for a beginner. Good luck with the quilting. I just did mine myself and stitched in the ditch.
