Yay! The commissioned Irish Chain quilt is all finished and I can deliver it to the customer this afternoon. You can see it is queen size with a generous drape, 86×107 inches. The blocks were 10 1/2 inches, the purple and white borders are 1.5″ and the final blue border was cut at 3 .5 inches.
Here is my feathered heart. Details on that tomorrow! They were fun to stitch. I finally feel at ease with feathers, hooray!
And my other trick on this quilt was using clip art. I printed the designs on regular paper, taped them down, and stitched over the lines. Yes, there is the pesky step of tearing away the paper, but I knew I was not enough of an artist to try those designs free hand!
Now, which UFO gets to come out of hibernation for my next project? I don’t have any current projects waiting. (Key word is “current” – I have at least a dozen partially completed quilts laying around!!) Maybe I will spend a few days cleaning and reorganizing my sewing room…
