Irish Double Chain Quilt

I would like to share a beautiful Double Irish Chain quilt I recently finished quilting for my customer Ann.  Ann's quilt was made with 1 inch squares and was quite large.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to take a photo of the whole quilt but here is a section of Ann's quilt.

All of the light coloured 1 inch squares were quilted with continuous curves while the centres of each Irish Chain were quilted with a separate motif.  Yes, I did count the centres - there were 120 - lots of stops and starts but worth the effort.


Enjoy your quilt Ann - thank you for letting me quilt it for you.

Diamond Sawtooth Quilt

You may remember the beautiful Diamond Sawtooth Quilt which I quilted for Linda from Quilts in the Barn last year which I blogged at the time here.

Linda entered her quilt in the Vic Quilters Showcase recently and was as excited as I was to have won a first prize ribbon in the Traditional Two Person Professional Category.  It is the first time one of my customer's quilts has won a ribbon - it was lovely to see it displayed with its two ribbons.
Congratulations Linda and thank you for sharing the moment!
