Challenge 2017; #12 - Pink & Blue Little Irish Chain

When you set yourself a challenge, you sometimes wish you hadn't! In pulling out projects and sorting through boxes and tubs of quilts in process (UFOs), I've found many things that I had completely forgotten about and since I set myself the challenge.....I've got to do something with them. This little Irish Chain quilt (29" x 36") was pieced when I first started teaching quilting over 25 years ago. I remember it was part of a sample set showing how scale of prints in fabric affect the finished look of the piecing.

Challenge 2017 - #9 & 10

I purchased fabric to make a quilt for a baby qirl. I over estimated the fabric requirements. I think in the back of my mind I knew I would need more fabric for other baby girl projects.

Because I had 2" cut strips left over from the baby quilt of quilt #5 I cut more strips from my scraps to add to the stash. I sewed the strips together end on end, Jelly Roll Race fashion. I pressed the seam allowances open and then trimmed the strip into 9 1/2" lengths. I sewed 6 lengths together into 9 1/2" x 9 1/2"
