    Default The last quilt of Christmas (I think!)

    I've been on a mission to finish some of my UFO quilts during the month of December. This is for my sister for her daybed, which is in desperate need of new bedding! I gave her the choice of three possibilities and she chose this one. I seem to have issues sizing these Irish chain quilts, they never seem to end up the right size for this bed, I've made three so far and they are either too wide or too short. This one is a bit over sized for the bed, but so be it!

    At least she won't need a dust ruffle!

    Are you sure it's the last? Even last place mate, table runner? Happy Holidays to you and your Sister.

    Simply stunning - I need to learn to do that pattern if it is as easy as I think people have said.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    It was easy peasy, just keep moving to fill in the empty spaces!
