Work in Progress: Single Irish Chain Quilt Top Done!
My cutting is not the most accurate and square, and I am still mastering my new Baby Lock Katherine. And so a 1/2" seam and lots of pinning were A-OK with me for this wedding present quilt.
As you can see linen wrinkles easily, but I do love the look of these pastel cottons and Essex natural linen--it's also quite a heavy top because of all those 1/2" seams. I've already sewn a backing of baby pink Kona cotton, and I've made an appointment at the end of the month to long arm quilt it. I'm hoping it will actually function for cuddling under with a glass of wine and a book.
