Single Irish Chain

My friend, Donna, recently finished piecing her first quilt. I am the lucky one that got to quilt this beautiful Single Irish Chain!  

 Can you believe this is her first? It is so beautifully done! She chose this panto from Urban Elementz. 

I used Glide thread in Celery for the top and Cream Magna Glide Classic in the bobbin. I turned off the lights to take this next picture so the quilting would really show. 

And this is the lovely label on the back. The little white bits are stabilizer that will wash away.

I thought it might be fun to try taking a video of the quilting process. The quality admittedly isn’t great. I taped my phone to the long arm machine to do this. I hope it isn’t too loud!  

This video doesn’t exist

Thanks, Donna, for letting me quilt this special quilt for you!

Linking up with Pink Doxies.

    Oh, Katy. Thank you so much for all the kind words. You and Pam have really encouraged me, and now I AM HOOKED! Thank you for the video, too. That was awesome! I couldn’t ask for any better results with the quilting. It is a good thing I had Pam do the label, or I might be tempted to keep it for myself! LOL

    Donna’s first quilt is a real beauty, and will surely be treasured. Thanks for letting us non-longarmers “ride along”; that was a neat video.
