What's Next?

IMG_2874.JPG
The Double Irish Chain is complete.  I might add borders if    it becomes a back.  This is a partial shot of the top.  The top is square - 13 blocks.                   




















          
So, what's next?  I pulled two projects from hibernation to marry as front/back.  The Old Maid's Ramble has a lot of dark blue fabrics which are hard to discern in the photo.  The blocks finish at 17", so I only need 25.  This will be the front.  The shirting top is an antique quilt Bonnie Hunter posted on her blog years ago; she graciously gave me permission to recreate the quilt.  I'm targeting early September to get these to the quilter.                        

 Look at the great BD present from hubby!  The shop owner took buying trips to PA - I'm guessing that's where the doll bed originated.

It is a good thing you said it's a doll bed--it looks like the real thing in the picture. Your quilt really finishes it off. It's perfect!

What an awesome BD present. The little quilt seems to fit the style of the bed perfectly. So glad to see what you've been stitching.

LOVE the ticking mattress on that doll bed! It will be fun to make quilts for it! Your big quilt projects are so beautiful - and ambitious!

Three beautiful quilt tops shared -- and that doll bed is exquisite!

Love what's on your design wall.
The little bed is adorable, and has a quilt already!

Wonder how many little squares are in your Irish Chain. Must be a lot.

There are 2,125 in the pieced blocks. The extra row on the border has 186 squares and 26 rectangles. I'm not counting the 4 squares in the common block since it was strip pieced. Yikes, that's a lot of squares.

Your Irish Chain is so inspiring and so is the dolly quilt!

I live your projects. You are tempting me. Ive been looking at pictures of the scrappy ones for months. Must not start one yet...
