Great job, awesome memories, I am not into quilting myself, but I do love and appreciate some of the pretty patterns like this one. Gongrats
This is so beautiful and I love the pastels you used.
Really beautiful! Could you provide pattern/instruction information?
Oh, dear. I wish I could be more helpful. I found the inspiration for this in a book at the library, but I can't remember which quilting book in was. It might have been one by Pam Lintott. This quilt is a triple Irish Chain pattern (7x7 grid) with a simple star in the center of Block B (or 2). The blocks measure 14" x 14", so the squares in Block A are 2 inches when finished - cut at 2 1/2 inches. There is a fairly good Irish Chain pattern at this website, but it doesn't really address how to strip piece and to make the blocks. http://www.generations-quilt-patterns.com/triple-irish-chain-quilt.html . I do hope you find some of this helpful to you.
Beautiful, great colors!
Love it my grand mother as well had quilts I just loved them as they kepted me warm, made me feel safe and special sleeping at grandma's. She had an old coal stove that would die out in the wee early morning, but the quilts kepted us warm. Great job I'm sure your grand mother would be proud of you.
