This afternoon I had a few quiet minutes to myself so I hurried and put the binding on this flowery irish chain quilt.
This is the third irish chain quilt that I've made this year and it's safe to say that this pattern is now one of my go-to favorites. It whips up so quickly and it is a great way to use up any 2.5" or 3" squares (or strips) that you may have on hand.
As I was doing the binding I decided that this is pink plaid one of my most favorite binding prints. I've used it on two different quilts now, and I have enough yardage left to use it on maybe two more bindings! (All of the prints used on this quilt are from the Chance of Flowers line by Sandy Gervais)
This quilt got the "swirly ribbons" treatment for quilting design. I've been doing so many variations of swirls lately that somewhere mid-quilt I think I started doing kind of a loopy-swirl thing but then I got myself back on track. Haha!
The finished measurements are 53" x 60" and now I think I'll give it a wash to let it get all nice and crinkly!
