I started quilting this king size Double Irish Chain the day after Christmas. It is now in the what I call the final stretch. I am working on the border, and then I decided to go back and put in some orange peel quilting between some of the large motifs. It will help even out the quilting throughout the quilt.
I started this quilt last June when organizing my sewing studio. I had a large rubbermaid tote full of scraps from all kinds of projects I had made this last decade. At one point, I didn't think I would see the bottom of the tote and I was so glad when I did.
