100% cotton fabric
What was your inspiration?
I love Irish Chain patterns. I had an Irish Great Great Grandmother, Alice Dorney, that I admire.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I was able to finish this in the midst of recovering from the May 25th 2011 tornado damage to my sewing studio. There was no electricity in the studio and I couldn't get to my older Bernina, so I set up my Featherweight on a small table and pieced it at the foot of the bed shown in the photo. Jeff is my grandson and he and his new bride love the quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Start looking through your stash of fabric and enjoy the process. All the print fabric in this quilt are flowers. I made the quilt label with my printer as well.
