This is a quilt I finished this last weekemd. It is a traditional double Irish chain quilt. I tried a new quilting pattern. I like to freemotion quilt with no set pattern. I basically like to doodle. You can not see the fabric real well but it had slight swirls to it. I liked the look so I repeated it in my quilting. I liked the effect so much I wanted to keep it for myself. It was hard to let it go. The lady in this picture was the reciepnt of this beautiful creation. It was a gift from her daughter for her 50th wedding anniversary. It was a joy to help my friend by making this gift for her mother. You can see more of my quilts at my website.
