Happy Monday quilting friends! Spring is finally here in Podunk. The flowers are starting to peek through the mulch and the veggie garden is well under way. With so much going on outside it's inspired me to dig through my needs to be quilted pile of UFO's. This pink and yellow Irish Chain quilt that I call Strawberry Lemonade looked like the perfect spring project.
A quick dig through the stash for a backing left me in a pickle. The stash of backing fabrics are getting low. All that's left is dark colors. What the heck...a scrappy quilt needs a scrappy backing. Four pieces of pink yardage were sewn together to make the backing. Now she's loaded and ready to go.
As usual I'm putting feathers in the open areas, whats a quilt without feathers, right? The plan was to do mostly free motion quilting because it's much quicker than ruler work. However the center of the feather work is made with a ruler. The feathers aren't as uniform as I'd like but they are staying put and we'll just say it gives the quilt character. HAHA!
If you'd like to make a scrappy Irish Chain quilt you can find my quicky tutorial here. Some quilt making knowledge is required.
