I just finished this Double Irish Chain about a month ago. It was a gift for friends who had celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. We met and had lunch yesterday and I gave them the quilt. I am sure that it has gone to a good home and will be treated well.
Sounds kind of silly doesn't it. Like I'm giving them a living thing. But after you've spent quite a lot of time working on them they do take on a personality of their own.
This quilt was one of the most heavily quilted items I have ever done. Not quite so large. It measured about 85" x 85".
There is a stacked heart design in the middle of the block and there is a double heart and my own feather design in the border. There are straight lines running through the chains.
Hopefully it will last for another 50 years!
