Irish Chain with Chrysanthemums

Another Irish chain. This one has some chrysanthemum flower fabric in the centers. I used Patricia Ritter's Chrysanthemum design for the blocks and the corner stones. I did a big echoed feather traveling clockwise around the quilt borders and CC's in the chains. SID the borders and cornerstones. I used Quilter's Dream Puff batting to get this nice quilt definition. (see photos of the back). I used Sew-It-All #887, I call this 3-ply thread Magic because it seems to pick up the color of the surround fabrics so it works well in lots of places. I used PermaCore Chamois in the bobbin.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
