Irish Chain Baby Quilt


I LOVE making baby quilts. It's a great time to try out new patterns or color combinations. I've had my eye on Irish chain quilts for some time now, I love all the different variations out there and was excited to try one out when a good friend announced she was expecting a little girl. 

I don't get to do a lot of quilting these days, due to these two, but that's OK. One day they'll be grown & I'll  have all the time in the world to sit & sew! 
Until then I am LOVING being a twin mom. It is so special & so much fun.. Lots & lots of work, but they're so worth it.

Never been one to post lots of family pictures....but I just couldn't resist. This represents most of my posterity, (missing three beautiful children who currently reside in the eastern most part of the U.S.). My life has had some wonderful highs and difficult lows....but I would do it all again to have these amazing children as part of my family. They are bright, kind, compassionate, funny and adorable. So grateful for the ties that bind...grateful that my family is forever!

Well, we took pictures, but I guess this is the only one. Dang, I'm kind of sad, because I really like this pattern. This is one I made for Rachel's twins.... technically, I didn't know I was making it for one of them, but I'm glad I did. I also gave her the woven garden quilt...those babies are going to have a blanket for every day of the month.

This is made from fat quarters and scraps, if you look at other quilts I've created you'll see some of these fabrics are repeats. But, that's always good in my opinion, because it allows room in my material bins for new fabric.
