    Christmas Carolina Chain

    I made this from Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Chain pattern which, at the time, I found in her "Addicted to Scraps" column in Quiltmaker magazine. The pattern is now available in her newest book, Addicted to Scraps. I used a constant red print and a constant white print to form the chains and add some cohesiveness to the very scrappy top. I set off the scrappy foundation-pieced border with a narrow black border. Black binding and a snowflake-type print for the back completes the quilt.

    This is a Christmas gift for my Mom. I had her open it early, so she could use it this holiday season, instead of having to wait until next year.

    Happy Holidays!

      That is just gorgeous! I'll bet your mom was thrilled. I love Bonnie Hunter quilts; I'm working on the En Provence mystery right now and then have plans to make the Idaho Square Dance, Wonky Wishes and some others. Maybe the Carolina Chain, too! Who knows?

              Say, Girl, don't you ever slow down so we can catch up to you?

              This is a gorgeous piece of work . . . you GO!

              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
