My Irish Chain Twist Quilt is quilted and bound, and I love it!
This quilt is the result of Melissa's Quilt Along to promote her new book.
I am so glad my friend Cyndi suggested that I quilt along. I would not normally have chosen this quilt along because of the applique, and it ended up being a piece of cake! So thank you to Melissa for a fabulous tutorial and Cyndi for pushing me along.
Instructions were included for different sizes and and color schemes. I chose queen size because I love a big quilt and picked a controlled scrappy look.
The colors turned out great. And the fabric I found for the back was PERFECT! It echos all of the colors from the front beautifully. Cyndi quilted it for me on her long arm. I picked a flower pattern that matches the flowers in the backing.
I bound the quilt with a bright pink that really makes the applique petals stand out.
I wish you could feel how soft this quilt is. I was a little worried about the applique being too stiff, but it drapes beautifully.
The only think left to do is pop it into the washing machine so it can get all crinkly!
Thanks for stopping by!
