Major Procrastination

I found out about 8 months ago that I would be teaching a class on my Braided Irish Chain quilt.  I was so excited!!  First thing I realized was that I was going to have to write a pattern for the class, especially because when I first submitted the design for the class, I changed the size options to make it more  "bed size friendly"  .  Well, I procrastinated, and procrastinated.  And then I procrastinated a little bit more.    And finally, the week before the class, I sat down and started writing the pattern.  I finished a day before the class :) Yup, all about last minute around these parts ;)  And I am so linking this finish up to Amanda's ;)

 I originally intended to write this pattern for just a California King size and a Queen size, but once I got going I couldn't stop.  So the pattern actually has 6 sizes, others sizes include Baby, Lap, Twin, and King.  The pattern also goes over detailed instructions on how to strip piece each size to help save tons of time in stitching.

I am so happy to have finally finished this!!  I will be honest, pattern writing, not so much fun for me.  But I loved seeing all of the finishes from my class yesterday so that makes it worth it ;)   I have always loved this quilt design and now I totally want to make it in a baby size for a good friend who is expecting.  I just need to wait to find out if it is a girl or a boy.

I have listed this pattern at a temporary discounted price of $6.00.  I will keep it at this price until Valentine's Day, and then it will be listed at my regular pattern price of $7.50. Patterns can be found here.

I so appreciate all of the kind comments that I have been sent my way on this design.  It really is one of my favorite designs I have created and will always have a special place in my heart as it was my first official teaching opportunity.  I hope you like it too :)  Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!
