It would have been a lot easier with the 2 1/2" die from Accuquilt GO baby! ... but until I win one I'll have to do it the old fashioned way with my rotory cutter. For a great giveaway go to

Double Irish Chain baby quilt
I'm really happy how this Double Irish Chain baby quilt is looking right now. I started cutting the pieces yesterday morning and look, it's a quilt top! I plan to do the back in the coordinating shasta daisy print that is in one my blog posts on 3/21/11. I am still considering incorporating the baby's name in Word Play letters on the back as well. I finished this top with only 9" of white thread left. Whew! Who runs out of white thread? I also tried to finish it before the sun went down, but at 8:15pm I got a little darker picture than I wanted. This will also be my first attempt at machine quilting. Wish me luck! I need to watch a few tutorials.
