    The following pictures are quilts that I currently have. For a long time I didn't have a digital camera so many I have given away I don't have pics of. I will do a better job of the quilts I make in the future!

    I don't have a good place to hang so I photo them on a bed.

    A scrappy Irish chain, second picture is of the quilting done by my sis.

    Love your scrappy Irish chain! Just visited the "sorting scraps" thread, and this would be a great one for sorting your scraps!

    What a lovely Irish Chain. You have inspired me to make a scrappy one. That flannel is nice also...and I bet, so cozy!

    Lovely, I would keep them too. They look great on a bed as they were designed to be!

    That pattern is actually a pantagraph, she was just learning and I gave her artistic freedom!

    It is so soft, especially since it has been washed several times. Since the young lady has moved to Austin and doesn't need it any more I am actually contemplating taking out the ties and utility quilting it. (larger stitches, especially good for flannel quilts when quilting by hand.)

    There was no rhyme or reason to the colors, I have some colors in the quilt that are ugly but are small enough you can't tell!

    Your scrappy Irish Chain is gorgeous and lucky you that your sister quilted it for you. A real family heirloom.

    Love, love, love your Irish chain! I am definitely going to have to make one. I've been drooling over them for about a year and a half, just haven't worked up the courage to try one. You did an awesome job. Congrats.
