Here is what I have done so far on the Double Irish Chain. It's going faster than I thought it might but it is always that way at first. You want to see how it will look but by the time you are on the hundredth Baptist Fan or second mile of straight stitching you are pretty much over it. At least that's how it works for me.
A few people mentioned my quilting frame. I got it second hand at a craft sale (selling leftover craft supplies, not finished crafts) which is held every year near where I live. There are usually lots of quilting books and fabrics so I like to go. The frame looks like it is home made and it is very sturdy. It has neat little wheels with cogs on each end to tighten the quilt. I love being able to have my quilt all set up ready to work on at any time, even for a few minutes while waiting for supper to cook or the bread to rise. It's either that or Blogging. Hmm...maybe it woud go faster if I spent less time blogging and more time quilting. Not likely to happen!
