I really wasn't planning on working on the binding of the Scrappy Double Irish Chain quilt tonight, but I had a bit of time available while dinner was in the oven. After a long day, just sitting in the chair for a bit was appealing. I picked up the quilt, needle and thread and got started. After dinner, and a swim for Cooper, I picked up the quilt again. I looked ahead and realized that I was almost at the corner. And I knew that it was my last corner. I was almost done!
I finished the binding and was so happy to take the finished picture! You can see the top and bottom border here. I repeated the dark and medium design, but not the white.
It makes for an interesting border. Not borderless, but not distinctive either.
The Scrappy Double Irish Chain is a generous queen size quilt. I don't have any idea what I will do with it. Time will tell. Here is a close up of the quilting.
On a smaller note, I do know what I am doing with this quilt! This is going to a special not-yet-born little girl!
I quilted it Sunday. Oh my gosh! That is so fun to say! I quilted it all in ONE DAY! The quilt is about 50" square. I can quilt that size on my regular machine in a day, but it would take ALL DAY, especially if I was doing something nice. With the long arm, I can do something nice and only spend a few hours!
I really like this design. It is Chevron Feather. I was going to do either the daises or hearts, but when I brought the quilt downstairs, this panto was out and spoke to me. I love the little curly queue in it. I guess I'll have to try the hearts on another one.
