I am working on this quilt. I did not take a picture before I put it on the frame but it is a Double Irish Chain (Eleanor Burns).
I did not want to do an all over meander and I felt each block should be quilted separately. But the blocks are 10” and I can quilt up to about 7” in width with each pass.
This is the quilt pattern that I want to use. I had the block resized to the correct size (@ Staples) and then I went to work.
Now some people are very talented and can do simple marking and do beautiful quilting. I am not some people. I ended up tracing each half of the block pattern onto long strips of tissue (Golden Threads).
I will pin each strip to the quilt and then sew through the paper. I traced out 10 pattern strips for the body of the quilt, 4 for the border and 4 corners.
Interesting. I just compared the little picture of the quilting design and my templates and they are not the same. Hmmm…Evidently I traced my pattern from a different variation of the design…
I will keep you updated.
