Carla’s Double Irish Chain
Carla made this quilt top a very long time ago, she thinks probably 25 years. Her original plan was to add appliquéd hearts to the alternate blocks but life got in the way and she decided the quilt was just fine without the hearts. The quilting design is called “Azaleas” and fills the negative space nicely. I am experimenting with taking the pictures in a different spot, with the quilt draped on the frame but I am not sure yet if I like it. I was hoping to get the colours to look better but haven’t had much success. The pink fabric looks too much like bubble gum in the photos, it is a very nice and soft pink in reality. I’ll keep trying!
