Scrappy Irish Chain may be a new favorite for me. Maybe it is the simplicity of the blocks or the overall scrappy look. The baby has arrived. It’s a BOY!
In the card to the parents I included this story about the quilt.
After I finished quilting we went to a wings and pizza place nearby. I bound the quilt while at dinner. I tried my best not to get wing sauce on the quilt. While the quilt survived our dinner, my hope is that it’s used and gets lots of stains in it’s life.
For the backing, I dug deep into my stash. The print is from the Taxi line from 2009?
Hubby helped me pick out the binding. Red or blue were the top choices. Red won and looks great on the quilt.
Instead of just straight lines I tried a more of the square and rectangle free motion quilting.
Look for another scrappy Irish chain in the future.
