In January of 2016, I have the wonderful opportunity to do a trunk show of the quilts from Irish Chain Quilts as part of the Quilt St. George Retreat!!!! I can not wait as I love to share these quilts. However, I realized a bit ago that I have a bit of problem as several of the quilts from Irish Chain Quilts are on a Shop Hop that has become so popular it is booked out way past January. Meaning several of the quilts won't be home to show . . . .So . . . I am working on some remakes!!! And it is so much fun to get to be making some of these again!!!! This last weekend I spent Cutting, Cutting, and then Cutting some more for 3 new Irish Chain Quilts!!!
The first to be cut up was some of the cool toned leftover's I had from my Tucker Prairie Fat Eighth Bundle by One Canoe Two. I just love these beautiful prints and paired off with that beautiful Navy Grunge it is going to make a stunning Breaking Up quilt!!!
Then it was time for some cutting with scissors instead of a rotary cutter. And it was a lot of cutting but oh so much fun as I added in some favorite movies while cutting, ie. Pride and Prejudice, North and South, and Jane Eyre ;) I used a beautiful layer cake of Flutter by Amanda Herring that I picked up at my first market!!! It think it is going to make the prettiest Daisy Chain baby quilt!!! I just love the oranges, reds, and blues together!!!
And finally, I grabbed all of my bits and pieces of different "whitish" solids and a beautiful bundle of Peppered Cottons that I picked up at this last Spring Market Sample Spree and got to cutting!!! Don't you just love those beautiful trim leftover. And yes, I love cool tones together, they are just so calming and happy making!!
And that huge stack of squares will be turned into a Bitty Bits quilt . . . only I will be doing the opposite layout this time, ie . . . the chain of triangles will be in the whites and the background will be in all the beautiful colors!!! I can't wait to see it done so ya, I might have to start on this one first ;)
So now that all of that cutting is done . . . it is time to get sewing!!!
Linking up these new WIP's to Lee's ;)
