Floral Triple Irish Chain completed!

Yep. My goal was the end of the month and I made it, barely. Here's a photo of the completed quilt. The final quilt is 73x87 inches. I used Warm and Natural batting. Most of the fabric came from stash including the back! Woo hoo!! I meander quilted amongst all the floral fabrics and used an enlarged motif from Quiltmaker's Motif Book #1 for the center white squares. I echo quilted around them and finished off with meanders and leaves.

I completed the top right after the swap at QATW in April 2005. Pinned it in 2007. Yep. Takes me awhile, doesn't it?

Will update with better photo when the sun comes out again.

This is a very easy quilt to do. The directions at Quilter Cache are very good, but she is doing 2 inch strips and I did 2.5 inch.

This link has instructions closer to what I did using the 2.5 inch strips.

Stunningly beautiful and inspirational! I would love to do one of these - maybe for my daughter when she marries. Since she's only 17, I have a couple of years to work up the courage to do this. Thanks for including the links!
