    Here is an update on my double irish chain. I quilted an x in white squares and in the larger white blocks I done a feather wreath. and in the middle of that small stippling and on the outside also. Now to figure out how to do the border. My border is not big enough to do a feather, I don't think any suggestions

    here is a picture of the border

    It's beautiful! I am not seeing the edge of the quilt in the photos, so not sure what your border looks like.

    It is the first time I have tried quilting feathers much less a wreath of them, made some mistakes,but I did it, I dug up some courage and went for it. it started getting easier as I went. It won't make no quilt show. I am so proud of what I have done. I know I will continue to improve. Thanks to all of you and your inspiration. Anybody got any suggestions for the border? I am stumped at this point. Thanks Dolores

    Beautiful quilt! Love the quilting design you did. For the border - why not continue the line that you have in the white squares and replicate the X's on the border?

    It never ceases to amaze me how much the quilting adds to a quilt, well done.

    Another idea for your border --- stitch in the ditch of the border seam and leave other portion unquilted since there is only going to be 2 inches or less once you sew your binding on - the flow of the quilting will follow thru to the border in that none of the quilting was done in the red.

    Thank you. That might just be what the doctor ordered. I put that border on just to frame the quilt. I think that will solve my problem. I won't have to hunt and scratch my head to find something small to fit in. thank you

    That quilt is an inspiration. I too have to get to grips with feathers. Did a class with Philippa Naylor when she came to our Jersey 'Caesarea Quilt Club' so was able to get some first hand knowledge and experience actually getting the fabric in the machine and trying it for myself. Had fun and enjoy it but I find everytime I go back to do the quilting I have to practice a fair bit - I am obviously not doing it frequently enough for it to come out as I want it every time.

    The Double Irish chain is a really good design to help practice quilting on. Thanks for sharing.
