Yes, that's right, that is a giant queen plus sized Triple Irish Chain - oh yea!!!!! That bad boy took me about four months from fabric completion to final thread clippings! It took me forever to decide on a quilt pattern - I wavered between double wedding ring, jacob's ladder, and various star designs. However, as the bride is Irish and had quite a few Irish traditions woven into the wedding ceremony, I thought it would be fitting.
|I ran out of fabric twice - even though my friend Adelle helped me plan out the quilt on EQ7, my not-so-smart self wasn't able to purchase enough fabric. Luckily, the design lent itself to a variety of teals and blues.|
The longarmer I had originally intended to quilt this for me was unable to meet my deadline, so i ended up doing the whole thing on my back up machine, a Bernina 380. Yes, the Bernina 380 does only have 8 inches of throat space. That's all I can really say here on a public domain. As you can see, the quilting didn't go as well as expected, but I'll have a forever memory of this quilt and be reminded of my hard work every time I look at my left index finger. (Fitting, right?)
Anyways, I learned a TON while working on this quilt and I think it won't be long before I move up from amateur to beginner quilter . . . . .
