The sister quilt is done! I really love how this one came together.
It all started with these 2 1/2 inch strips cut from my collection of Denyse Schmidt prints.
I wanted to choose a pattern that was reminiscent of an Irish Chain. I used Anne Dease’s book, Bits and Pieces and only changed the pattern slightly! Here are some pictures before washing:
And some after washing:
I can live with that! This quilt ended up 64 x 82 inches. It shrunk up quite a lot, about 4 inches in width and 6 inches in length. But I expected that since I didn’t prewash anything.
My sister received the quilt on Wednesday. I think she liked it. 😊
I’ll be leaving in the morning for Phoenix. I can’t wait! I have posts scheduled for nearly every day that I am away, including a fun guest post for Quilting is More Fun Than Housework! I will likely check in with a few baby pictures as well :).
I will surely keep up with reading every comment. But I may be too busy with my kids and those two cute grandsons to respond much.
